Marina Breeding Box setup

I'd like to share Marina Breeding Box setup for separating shrimps or fishes.
Here it is. Marina box, Elite micro pump. Prefilter from Amazon 3 for $3.99 to work like a sponge filter. Connectors for tubing are from Lowe's or Home Depot at hose and plumbing section.$2-4 each. And there are 2 berried shrimps in 2 of those boxes. This setup work for me so far.

Looks great. I want to get something like this to selective breed some of my shrimp. Any chance of getting some shots from the top and front?

There is nothing to be shown. Exept 2 small reworks. I'll show them tonight.
The box is HOB like a filter, and tubing for the water is the same which is provided with the box just it is made to be use with air. Air is too loud and flow is too low for me.
Tell me what you like to see and I'll try to snap image.

You could chain together multiple 10g tanks as well and power everything with a single canister filter if you're looking for the stability of a larger volume of water. Wknracer has a great journal about it, where he has 4x10g linked. 3x 20G linked. And a 55g 20g and 10g linked. Pretty sweet setups. All are only powered by a single canister filter.

But.. palmski's setup looks pretty nice as well. Wouldnt' do it on a rimless tank though if you know what I mean :P

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

I just don't have space for a chain of tens right now. Trust me, I'd love to have several dedicated 10 or 20 gallon breeding tanks.

As far as the pics, just wanted to see the pump setup and just how it looks from the front all set up. I see what it looks like from the for sale ads, just nice to see them in actual operation.

Not to hijack the thread, but do you have a link to that?

I'm going to guess that you could use the same substrate that is in your tank or go bare bottom if you wanted.
