That breeder box/refugium set up is awesome! Do you have any specific links as to how you set it up?

What you see in the pic is pretty much it. There's Amazonia II Powder in there that I had lying around. I connected a Zoo Med 501 filter to the box. These breeder boxes were originally designed to run by an air pump. There are two disadvantages to running it with an air pump.

1) super noisy because of the bubbles and gurgling sound because the outflow is above the water...constant gurgling and water dripping sound.....

2) not enough flow into the box

The Zoo Med 501 fits perfectly where the air line normally goes and there is a ridiculous amount of water being pumped into the box now. I had to put the tube and moss mesh right under where the water goes in so the soil doesn't get blown around. The intake for the 501 is right next to the UGF....it has a stainless steel prefilter cover...

Here's a pic from the last time I set it up that way. You can see the outflow connected to the box. The intake goes in the main tank.

The only bacteria in this tank is the Bacter 100 and BT-9 I layered into the soil. I'll let this tank break in nice and slow. This way I can keep the CO2 on for a couple of months and let my HC grow in nice! No rush for me.

I'll put the PBL colony in here when the time comes...they're outgrowing the 30c....then use the 30c for culls and I'll throw in some TB in there with them to make some hybrids...so that's the plan.

Sorry, maybe I missed it, but why'd you choose to use CO2 in a shrimp tank? I thought it was against your shrimptech philosophy . Presumably for the Erios?

I think he said that he's doing it for a grow out period in the beginning.

This is an intense setup. I count atleast 4 different filters not including the purigen in the breeder box. The water must be crystal clear.

on a side note I've regenerated my purigen and did a dechlor and added some acid before to it but I noticed it still raises my PH a bit. Have you had the same issues?

I split the Anubias white with someone. I have an Echinodorus Aflame aka "Purple Knight" in the orb. Same plant as the middle, but a baby. The Anubias white is finally growing some new leaves tho....

Naw, I don't check my Ph...I trust Aquasoil....even if it raises it AS will push it right back down....

Wow that's a lot, but I guess that's the cost of getting stuff shipped up there. Did you get a quote from AFA or ADG directly shipped?

Either way, I love my 60p. It's a nice size tank. Not too big not too small.

AWESOME SETUP!!!

It is going to be BAD A$$ when the moss and plants fill in!

One question though, where/how does the Orb attach?

Thanks,
Drew
