First attempt at an aqua bridge
This is my First attempt at an aqua bridge. So far my Gourami has made it part way up the tube.... but not up to the cross tube. If this works I may use it to link my 55 and 20 together.
Has anyone had good luck with these things???? Any suggestions???
thats awesome. I saw one of these for a connection between 2 tanks before. I always wondered what would happen if your fish died in the tube? How do you get it out?
you could use a water pump to flush it out.
maybe try using a larger diameter tube to help them get throw the bridge?
If somthing gets in there yo can just lift the bridge and it will empty, or push it through with a water pump like Mattcot said. Right now a have a small piece of a plant that floated up there.
I looked at larger pipe, but its expensive. This is 2" clear pvc, and believe it or not this was sitting in my garage.... leftover from a project at work. :-D
I would love to do a long one connecting two tanks in my office sometime. That is if these guys will go through it.
Thanks for the comments. :-D
Very creative. Thumbs up.
The 90 degree angle is probably going to make it hard...
They'd probably need a more gradual turn..
I think red might be right. 90 degree might be too much of angle. Interesting though.
This is where I got the idea..... Bio-Elite Aquarium Water-Bridge
His fish did not seem to have a problem with the 90 or the tube size..... BUMMER for me. I will keep messin with it and if I get it to work I will let ya all know. :-)
he says that he used 110mm which is just over double the diameter of your piping.
if you really wont the bridge to work you need to get thicker piping.
