Odd question, perhaps...what did you use for flooring in the gym?

I actually have the Titan (r3 clone). Itís not terrible. You can definitely see the difference between paint and powder coat. Mine is one of the more recent ones with cleaner welds. If I were in the 500-1000# squatting category, Iíd absolutely go with rogue, or something more commercial quality. But that definitely wasnít in the budget. Anyhow. I digress. Clean looking gym youíve got there. Wish the HOA in my area would approve something like that.

It's a shed with 3/4" T&G plywood subflooring over 2x6 joists.
I was worried about the heavy weights, especially if dropped so I put down a whole second layer of the 3/4" T&G subflooring. Then some red rosin paper just to help with any moisture. Then what you're probably really asking about, the top layer is 1/2" rubber rolls from rubberflooringinc.com
It's their "quick ship" option (just a few colors to choose from). First was thinking of going with stall mats due to the low cost and 3/4" thickness. But I felt all the seams were going to bother me. And I liked the idea of having the fleck to help hide dirt. Even with the fleck, I keep my shoes in the gym and have door mat for anyone else to wipe their feet before walking in. lol
And the 1/2 ended up being a good choice. This stuff is dense. And heavy as heck. It took three 20'+ rolls and they probably weighed about 200 lbs a piece. It's funny how the rubber reacts in different temps. Below 50 degrees, it shrinks. I see major seams. In warmer temps, it seals up tight. Can't even find the seams. And cleaning it is a breeze. Damp mop with some vinegar mixed in the water.

Ya, I went back and forth but then decided that it was worth the extra few hundred bucks for my OCD and knowing I'd always be thinking "what if". lol
Only thing that sucked was I got this whole idea in my head right AFTER thanksgiving so I missed all the BF sales which would have save me a bunch. I ended up having to pay both tax and shipping on top of it. But I ordered a TON from Rogue all at once so at least the shipping got combined. My UPS guy must have been like LOL

Yeah, who cares about your subflooring?

Perfect. Thanks. I couldn't see any seams, so it almost looked like you epoxied the whole thing.

Tank is looking great, Dennis.

I just ordered some of that cable raceway for my own tank since I am about to redo the lighting.

Also love that gym!

So these little babies of mine left the nest yesterday.
Just a few from the colony I have.




And this is the newest addition.

D2 - stunning pics as always. Really awesome. On a side note, I just received my GHL KH Director. Are you planning on adding one to your setup?

Not at this time. For one I don't want to spend the money, and two I'd like to see more people implement one into a calcium reactor setup. Most will be using it with regular liquid dosing.

Makes sense. It will be some time before I have any experience with it since my tank is "almost wet" - should be this weekend. But I'll do a review down the road.
