Is your water changing system going to be published in JAKA?
If I get it working successfully over a period of time, it will be published
somewhere - JAKA, www.AKA.org, this Friday at a local cichlid club, etc.
Basically it consists of a polyethylene tubing supply from a faucet through a
carbon filter to remove chlorine to a manifold to supply many tanks (right
now it is completed to about 20 - 5 gallon tanks) with overflow bulkhead
fittings to a catch basin to a drain out the back door. I have run it
intermittently and the fish seem to love it. Several challenges have been met
-- water flowmeter had to be designed and built, temperature had to be
moderated (50 degrees out of the tap), the drain froze where it exited the
house, etc. At the least, it will be run daily for an hour or so to change
the water. At best, it will be run continuously and will be extended to more
tanks. I do not plan on using it for smaller fry containers yet. I will put a
picture of the manifold and flowmeter on www.keystonekilly.org soon.
