This is my first post on this board and I am looking for a little help.
I am in the process of setting up Multipal breeding tanks. I have been doing a lot of research on the net about about filtering and sumps etc.
My diagram shows an idea I have concocted in my head, but I do not know the feasibiltiy of it, nor the minor details of how to get it done.
However here are some things that I do know I need help on..
1.) The tanks would not be pre-drilled requiring the overflow to be via U/J, but how does one go about setting that up.
2.) Tanks would more then likely be inconsistent in size, but would that make any difference?
3.)How do you set up a Sump exactly and how does it work?
a.)What filter media do I use?
b.)Does this media require being changed periodicly like Over the back filters?
4.)How does one make a Refugium?
I have attached a diagram that gives a rough Idea of what I am thinking of. Are my theories correct? I've never experiemented with this before. I'm sure I should probably try a smaller version on my 150g first to understand the principles, but I've never been one to try things half heartedly LOL
PLEASE give me all the specifics you can.
In my mind this is a way of making the water more stable and reducing the amount of equipment that I would need to buy, in addition it is expandable for when I need to add more tanks down the road.
I thank you very much for you help!
