Small breeder setup the build
Alright decided to start a new thread for the build of the breeder setup since I have 90% of my supplies now, mainly just missing the 20 gallon tank for the sump. This is probably going to take roughly a month of build time as I can't dedicate full days to this but I'm in no rush.
The setup is basically going to be 2 15 gallon storage containers as tanks, a 50 gallon acrylic tank that I picked up at a garage sale for $20, a 20 gallon sump (will be substituted with a 15 gallon storage container until I can get the tank) and a 10 gallon quarantine. Also I will use a 15 gallon storage container as a fresh water supply to do a slow drip water change over the course of the week, instead of a large on at one time.
I will keep this updated as the work goes along, for now here is a few pictures of the supplies (sorry text isn't readable).
cool. What you gonna breed?
Alright so I've fitted all the bulkheads and did the over flow for the 50 gallon and also reinforced the shelving where the 50 gallon will sit.
As for what I'm going to breed..... probably grow out any of my rams fry if they start breeding again, beyond that haven't figured out what else I might breed.
Looks good so far. keep us updated!
i am using the same shelf in my bedroom.i bought one befor i learned how to use power tools and built my own.they woble alot until you get the weight on the bottombut i like the adjustable shelves...
Very cool! Can't wait to see the progress!
Alright got most the plumbing done today, will probably pressure test the system tonight for leaks. I foresee at least one more trip to the hardware store.
i have had issues with bulkheads leaking on plastic bins so look out for that...and becarefull of the back siphoning to your sump as well as kinks in the flextube.this looks like something my son tried.cant wait to see some baby rams..
