I'm wanting some input on my design. Essentially there will be six of the 7 gallon rubbermaid storage bins (they are roughly 23"L x 17"W x 7"T), two on each shelf of a heavy-duty utility shelving unit. The unit has 5 shelves measuring 24x36 inches. I can fit two bins on each of the three middle shelves and one larger bin on the bottom shelf that will house the pump, heater, and filter media. The return flow (blue) will be made of PVC (whatever size matches up with the pump) except for the lines going into each bin which will be flexible hose.
The drains will be placed high on the sides of each bin and will be a larger diameter than the return flow and made of flexible hose. Rather than having them all join up with a central drain line, I'm just going to have each tank's drain go sepperately to the sump.
Inside each bin will be 12 cells made of plastic craft mesh, thus allowing the system to hold up to 72 betta fry.
I don't know what that is. I'm basing this setup on one used by a very expirienced and sucessfull betta breeder from another site. The only difference is that she used 9 smaller bins with 6 cells each that only housed 52 bettas total. I have a larger shelving unit available to use, so I decided to go with the larger bins.
Oh I was just curious if it was someone I knew, if you look on YouTube for bettascapes barracks sherolyn has an awesome set up. You also may have good luck asking at bettafish.Com there are quite a few breeders there.
