I built the whole system,its pretty easy,the way I've done it is so the fry will hatch and then grow until ready to ship out in the same system,Most people say to hatch the fry in a small round fish tank,this is only good for feeding the fry,PWC
's in a fry tank can be a massive killer of the fry,The way I set mine up is they hatch into an old salt bucket with a very slow water supply into it,cut a square out of the bucket below the water level and cover it with some filter media,the bucket is secured within a fish tank which is plumbed to a sump and the growout tanks,normal pwc
's can be done at a 10% rate helping with the survival of the fry.
