Does anyone here do central filtration for their shrimp tanks?
I'm sorry if posting the small cubes confuses the topic. The 3 cubes are not part of my sump system. They are isolated environments.So basically you have a pump per aquarium with an overflow back down to the main holding tank?
I'll pull some photos today and do a nice break down of it all.I understand now, however if you'd go into details of your design, I'd appreciate it as well.
Yes on my next design I will be drilling the tanks for an bulked overflow pipe. so much simpler design vs DIY PVC overflow. A lot of the breeders I've been communicating with drill the bottom of the tanks under the UGF for a drain pipe. This makes for quick water changes and also removes a lot of the buildup under the UGF when doing so.I plan on doing the same when I move, but will be drilling the tanks, as that is why I have choosen Mr Aqua tanks. You can drill all sides but the bottom. I will be doing sumps for eahc type of shrimp. 1 Neo 1 Tiger 1 CRS/CBS 1 PRL/PBL 1 TB/Mischling
Id say having a sump for a small cube is an awesome idea. adds a lot of water volume and place for all kinds of goodies for success.What a nice read on this threat! I know this will be hard/weird question, i had a 3 gallon tank and want a sump for it, yes over kill, but is there a suitable pump?
