Subject: Re: [Killietalk] flow through systems?
For anyone who's cares, I've just started adding pic's of my
handy-dandy new fishroom to the members gallery on the AKA site -
Das MORT Fishroom, which includes the following;
1)Cheap, easy, efficient rack system
2)Centralized flow-through water change, filtering
3)did I mention cheap..
I've been working on this design for ALOOOONG time. I 1st wanted
a gravity flow-through, no drilled tanks and as little plumbing as
possible, and I found few fishroom pic's on the WEB to help in the

show that the overflow tube isn't glued in and DOESN'T leak, and in
this way I can pull it and empty the tanks in no time flat. I'm
working on 2 more sets of racks, same senario, except one with
shoeboxes for fry. Eventually I'll put together a detailed article,
but the pictures will probably be enough. I possibly will add
optional slides on some of the tanks for dividers, just incase I
should want 1 or 2 more species, nah! :-).
