  1. K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) way too many things to keep track of there, bio tower, and waterchanges work great
  2. Just put a large ball valve on the pump outlet and control the water flow from there.
  3. fish tubs are good cause the stack an inch or two inside each other.
  4. bio tower can be big as you like, as long as the filter media isn't allowed to dry . look here http://www.absolute-koi.com/filtration/bakki.html the Japanese love their fish

  8. i am a big fan of over engineering, i would go the 75x50 myself for the beams and 50x50 for the legs. you can weld plates into the bottom of the legs and use 3/4 inch nuts and blots for adjustable feet.
  9. never use 'NEUTRAL' CURE silicone must be 'acetic' cure to be aquarium safe there are a lot of silicones out there, some will state aquarium safe on the label
  10. for 4'x18"x18" tanks i would go with timber, once stained or painted it is a lot more easy on the eye than pallet racking, 45x90 pine would be perfect you would obviously need 6 legs and if made right can be dismantled for a move. as for filtration, it depends to a degree on what fish you intend to keep, some fish create more waste than others, air driven sponges or would be ok for shellies but not for oscars or plecs. a sump would be my choice (one pump , one heater, easy maintainance) , but i have found overhead , and side drops very effective .
  11. connect the air check valve to the air suction part of a small power head, this will continuously bleed air out of the pipe.
  12. there are a few more , lismore, maclean brisbane and goldcoast is way closer and a better drive than central coast and sydney. i have made many trips to both and would rather go north anytime.
  13. coffs harbour africans, common and albino bristles
