It's a bit messy till the weekend when I have time to clean up all the wires and whatnot.. Anyways, the the black rubber made is an 8gal trash bin that I bought at home depot. It was black so that doesnt let any light come in (no algae) & I didnt have to paint it or cover it up.
The top is a plexiglass with a bulk fitting & the hose drops in there. The water is coming from sump with a pump. The pump is pushing 250gph i believe. Now, the hose runs through the top and inside is a T attached with two PVC
on each side & capped at the end. The water come in nice and doesn't come in a jetting as I drilled small holes The the PVC
is upward & not downwards.
The water runs out- There is another bulk fitting with PVC
to the 2nd bucket with some rocks growing algae in there. Then runs back to the sump. Will it work? I don't know- It was a raining day & pretty much had everything needed at home and just went for it.
Nitrate sits at 10ppm before PWC
every week. If I am going to do this right I need to check for nitrate every week on the same day of my PWC
. Will it suck up all the nitrate? I don't know but if it even drops it in numbers is a plus for me since I want to add more A,Cichlids to the aquarium.
