Yes, thank you for sharing your photos. It gives us all kinds of ideas about what we would like to do.

Tank setup update

This is just a progress update on getting my tank set up. I am finally a little further along than just watching sand dunes form in the tank as I experimented with different current systems. My new R.O. filter is working well (rated at 75 gpd- I get 62gpd since my water pressure is just 50 psi). I r...

I'm using Firefox and it is working fine. Maybe you just have an older version and need to upgrade. There is a "Check for updates" on the help menu.

It's good to hear that the wizard is probably agreeing with reality.

I like what you have done with the wizard. I have not had time to look at it much so I'll have to study it a bit more.

ChefKeith- I finally got around to checking your data against the water change wizard. According to the wizard, your TDS decrease would happen if you were turning over 24% of your water per day. The nitrate decrease would just need 17% turnover per day. That assumes that you do a continuous drip 24 ...

Good news! It looked pretty bad for those two earlier, but you may get them back to health yet.

It's great that no bubbles have formed in your siphon. It's really great that you have fry. Multiple species, but which species? P.S. A small comment: It looks like your overflow siphon and your output spray bar are fairly close together (maybe I am wrong about this). If they are close, then you won...

That is some pump. That's 6,120,000 liters per hour or 1.6 million gal per hour. Thus, you could have a tank with height and width equal to 1 meter and the water would flow along the length at 1.7 meters per second. That's pretty good. Imagine that pump hooked up to a circular tank with quite a whir...

Now that you can see if air accumulates you are probably in good shape. There are methods that people use to handle air by attaching a small hose and small pump at the top that can suck out air (which also pumps a little water). My understanding is that whether there will be a problem or not depends...

Your system looks good. I like the flexibility that you have built in so that you can move water in quite a variety of different ways.

Are you worried about air bubbles collecting in your overflow syphon which could result in the syphon breaking?

It's cool that we are number 1 on Google. Congrats on getting your drip system up and running. Pictures would be great. Continuous drip for half day on-off intervals is an interesting idea. The necessary rate of water used would be somewhere between the hourly frequency and the 1 second frequency on...
