Not the prettiest but it works.
Will be cutting the tubing shorter and sealing everything into one piece later this week. Need to get my dremel from storage.

Don't know why. But flow it way better in the refuge this way. Maybe because the outflow is in the box. Have a bag if purigen in there just to have an excuse to play with purigen.

Will update this week when I finish it up.

There's a post a few pages earlier about routing the plumbing backwards so you can put the pump in the hob instead of the tank.

Once I figure out a few pieces I'll post the results.

le0p i have seen someone put the pump in the breeder box, on this site actually, I just don't know where the post is.

My pump was in the tank. I started off using the little 40gph pump with this but put a nano hydor pump on it. The tube didn't fit so I just wrapped the outlet of the pump in some teflon tape and it stayed perfect for a year.

Down_Shift Trying to figure out how to plumb the water pump while keeping it in the hob box to keep the tank clean. Anymore details on this? I bought some hose and it doesn't stay on the pump.

swoof the sponge on the finnex hang on breeder is rather porous, the black thing where the water comes out. Shrimp will escape through that i've had it happen a few times. i'll load some pics of the finnex legs.

shift Roughly How many L/h is the little pump

creekbottom Ya, amazon won't ship it up here. Curiously though, they would ship the temp controllers up here, I don't get it.

I bought a small internal filter from big al's, I think the penn plax one. The opening on the filter and the box hose are the same size so I used some heat shrink tubing to hold the two together. It's been holding for over a year now!! Inside the box I used some water line to extend the tube into the bottom of the box.

shift I ended up getting a large marina one since finnex only had them on amazon us. Are you using an air pump or small water pump? If so what water pump fit onto the intake? I'm guessing that would be a lot quieter then an air pump

please explain.
Sponge on the HOB?
and legs on the light?

pics would be appreciated. I'm still planning everything out in my head right now in prep of getting it on Thursday.
