I was just reading up on the Ocean Clears. That added UV
looks rather interesting. Not to mention you can use a variety of pumps to target the output you want. Plus, depending on how you plumb it, you can reverse the pump flow. I still need to do more research to see if reversing the pump could be used for WC
's. That would be sweet.
If you add up an Ocean Clear UV
, pump, hard plumbing etc. It appears to come out cheaper than a pair of big Fluval's, XP's or Ehiem's canisters. These number were crunched on Big Al's for comparison. I'm sure it's debatable.
I'd really like to hard plumb as much as possible on a set up this big. Filters, CO2
, reactors, maybe even try to plumb the heater outside the tank.
Thanks for all the help. Keep those opinions rolling in.
edit: DUHHHH you could just plumb a ball valve in with a hook up for a water hose and let the pump drain water out of the home into the flower bed or garden. To much research, brain overload 8O .
