This week in Practical Fishkeeping they have a story and a few videos about a truly amazing river tank.

Here's the link: ... p?sid=6109

Here's an additional youtube video link of their biotope tanks :

And a link to their website: ... mit-video/

If you don't know know German, this would be a good time to learn. LOL.

This has given me some good ideas for a new clown loach river tank that I've already started building, which should be done by Spring. I'll probably start a new thread for that once I have some water in it.

Here's another video, but translated in English:

In this video they explain that to get the unilateral flow, they have a double bottomed tank, where the water flows underneath the top-bottom, to the other side. That was actually one of Martin's ideas from years ago!

Water flow is 130,000 gallons per hour!
