Default Using a linear air pump in a wet dry sump system for return...

The ventilation is important. I run a small window size exhaust fan spring,
summer and fall in my basement fish room and a dehumidifier the rest of the
year. I have considered a heat exchanger, but I haven't purchased one at
this point.

Last but not least, you should plan for adequate ventilation. A wall or
ceiling mounted exhaust fan of suitable size, and also, corresponding
vents to allow in fresh air. In a tight room the humidity will be high
and everything will be wet....and spills would never dissipate. I
forgot this on the earlier post... For vents I like the little cheap
plastic ones intended for the end of a central air duct, that allow you
to adjust how open or closed it is...
Perhaps a bathroom type vent could suck enough air, some of those have
heaters in them...but I wonder if there is a thermostat. Of course then
the question of where it would be vented to arises. I have two
bathrooms in my house. One is vented out a duct and out through the
roof, while the other is simply vented to the attic.

I guess your local weather pattern will help decide what if anything you
will need to do.

I've got one of those industrial window exhaust unit. I could build it
into the wall i'm putting in to separate the room from the rest ofthe
garage. I can use a hose to route the intake for the linear air pump
from outside the room, to ensure that the air supply into the tanks is
always fresh and dry.. I'm in Brampton Ontario, just north west of
Toronto.. Winters are pretty cold...

I didn't even guess you were in that part of the hemisphere, especially
when you said there was a cold water faucet in the garage. I guess cold
water faucet is a good description. Well, the good news is the slab
floor will keep the room nice and cool year round....

I'm down in Champlin MN near Minneapolis, where the winters are a bit
more tropical... I guess your garage faucet stem is also a foot long
like ours here...

I use a space heater in a well insulated room built in the basement only the aquarium. Some tanks have heaters to meet the warm love of fish, Like a discus, zebra plecos, and paradise fish spawning. A wall-mounted gas gas water heater if you are not cheap, but better long-term goal. I would like to once is not enough space for the vent.

I advance abrogation the attic as is perhaps abacus a mat to th aisle to abstain slipping. When you do body your racks accomplish abiding th posts are not sitting on the concrete. Some put hockey pucks beneath them. This activity keeps baptize (which will spill) from wicking up th structure.
