chris1932- Thanks for the information. That is one impressive pump. You must have the Mag-Drive 36 which moves 3600 gph or 60 gpm. I had not heard of these pumps. How did you plumb the inputs and outputs? Some care has to go into it when you are moving that much water.

LES..- Thanks for the pipe information. I will check around for some in this area. I am also appreciating how well Martin's river manifold works to develop good flow, and as you say, without the input flow disturbing the output flow. And it is all done with easily obtainable, inexpensive parts, whic...

Thanks for the information LES.. That gives me a real idea of how loud they are which will help me decide how to do things. Maybe I did not explain the pictures of the pipes well enough. I was just trying to do exactly as a river manifold except with an external pump (so it is quieter and heats the ...

Very, very funny! I trusted and believed it all too, but that picture Emma posted with it on its side looked suspicious, not because it was on its side, but because it looked a little awkward or just not quite right. I'll be watching out for you guys in the future!

Thanks Emma. Yes, I have been following LES..'s thread and his system looks like it will work very well. Since my 75 g tank just has water and sand in it I have had a chance to experiment and watch the sand dunes form. What follows are some of the things that I have tried. With Martin's river manifo...

Tunze noise level?

Would someone that has a Tunze stream pump comment on the noise level? LES.., do your 6060's make much noise? Emma, how is the noise level on your 6100 or is it a 6200 (I saw both mentioned when I searched previous posts)? I am not particularly happy with the two AC 70's (old 802's) that I have sinc...

Thank you Emma. I am impressed and surprised. Their movement is interesting. They can dart so very quickly, but also glide so smoothly.

The videos played perfectly for me and the quality is good.

If they grew at the same rate in your experiment it would not convince me of anything since a bare tank could be a stunting factor. For me, finding the exact causes of stunting is not that important. It is also very difficult to "prove" what the causes are and if it exists at all. It is also difficu...

One of the resources discussed in the article is crowding and space which certainly does apply to the case of an aquarium.
