one large filter?
I am going to get 6-8 tanks to breed my plecos, can anyone tell me it would be ok to run off a large sump? I was worried about cross contamination of the water, but if I keep my fish healthy and have a quarantine tank ready for any emergencies, I will run a large UV. Do you think that I will get away with this?
IMO, a sponge filter is enough for small breeding tanks. A sump is best in a large main tank.
I dont like sponges, but i might be willing to.
It's better to spend less than too much. Sponge filters are enough for a small breeding tank. A sump alone for each small tank is unnecessary.
I was thinking about one large sump for the all the tanks, allot cheaper. Heaters are $60 here. the tanks will be from 30-50 gal so I do not think a sponge will work.
:shock2: Each tank at that size? Go for the sump then.
That is what I am afraid of, if one of my breeder gets sick then it could all go down the drain :( but then its cheaper to do it this way. Would it be expensive to run 8 canister filters and 8 300 watt heaters? because this is the way I am leaning to.
Bit rough, innit?:brow:http://www.tropicalfish.site5.com/ubb/wink.gif Everything has pros and cons.:nicefish:
Zeb, I meant to say that the sump has pros and cons.
To translate the first sentence, here:
Bit rough, isn't it?
