simulated american river system???

Recommended Posts

well i had a theory,

i have a 6 x 2ft tank stand and i was thinking about getting a custom

6 x 2 x 1ft tank made for it, with a weir at one end and a eggcrate & sponge filter system/catchment at the other end with 2 x 5000lph powerheads pumping water back to the weir, would it be functional or would it just blow the fish away???

it would be flowing 2.7ltrs per second threw the whole tank depending on return line thickness..........

heres a BASIC diagram :D:D

Hi mate I think 5000lh power heads would be over kill in a 6 foot

I would go 4 2000lh power heads insted

And I would get 4 sheets of egg crat and put some bio balls in the middle

put a filter spong in the first secion and dackron in the other
