Thanks @buck

The rack has been invaded this week by some curiously stunning looking ladies!! You'll never guess who these came from?!? (Queen of the Tibees - hint)

Hi, im wanting to make a rack, something like this one is interesting to make, can i ask you what kind of lifting pump you used from the sump? and is there the same ammount of water coming into each tank? my worry is that it will either get to high flow in each tank or to low

The rack has evolved a few times Jamie, lots of great looking things on there though! Well done :)

Hey Hoff, 

Each tank has its own outflow, so will only fill to a certain point and then return to the sump.

I am using a Tunze return pump. I found the one used on my original rack consistent so went with them again. It pumps to a tee section and each hose going into tanks has a tap inline. I have adjusted these taps so all tanks get a similar amount of water each hour. 

To measure the flow each tank gets, I found it easier viewing the water volume leaving the tank as a guide. 

Hope that helps! ?

Thanks s1l3nt! I am a procrastinator, so it gave me a chance to make changes along the way. I am wrapt now, it's just a case of watch and enjoy. 

The hardest part is choosing breeding programs and sticking to them only.

One of my tanks has been producing some interesting offspring. Just had to share.

So far there are around five or six. In Red/White and Blue/Black. The markings seem fairly consistent so far.

I have seen these from two separate drops so far. I will be isolating and testing the reported theory that the traits will pass down the line. Enjoy!!

I have decided i will aspire to replicate your rack @newbreed. I was just wondering if u would mind shsring your sump design? I got about 9months to a year b4.i start so no rush.

 

Also wondering how much it set u back and is that black covering all 1 piece?

Hey @OzShrimp

The black on front is corflute. Got the idea from Dean's original thread. Big sheet at bunnings is around $14 and is attached by Velcro dots for easy removal.

Tanks cost around $85 each

Sump was $130

Heater $55

Return pumps around $140

Rack $300

marine ply $120

pvc $200

polytube $50

lights $600

around $2445

not including soil, mineral powder, salty shrimp, bee max, mineral balls, cholla, moss, feeding tubes. Lol

first time I have added it up!! ?

I bought individual pieces over a few months, so never felt like a massive sum. 

Can still gladly say it's worth every cent. Very happy with it.

i will try to get clearer sump image. But very similar to previous one I made, based on Jays thread.

dont let the total put you off, that's eight plumbed tanks and two stand alone units. So ten tanks all up!!

Forgot chiller $300. Lol

Lol was gonna say thanks for killing the dream lol. 

Plan now to get the rack for 1 lot and sump and a tank or 2 then slowly expand. Is the rack hard to put together cause on bunnings website ahows it in individual pieces

      Okay, so the title pretty much says it all... One of my berried tts just moulted, and she left the eggs in the moult. What happened, and why? 
      I'm going to try to save the eggs with some sort of extraction, and I'll be very careful. She was pretty far along. I think I'll use the net over bubbler method. Does anyone have experience with this, and particularly the extraction? I won't do anything until I have some idea to go off. 
      Thanks in advance.

      Oh and the moult is under like 2 hours old. Wasn't there when I started watching a movie, was there when I checked back after.
      Going off this video: 
      Hoping the process will be similar.

      Hey folks!
      So I got myself a little 5 gallon (20L) recently (it was free!) to use for quarantine. I’m going to use it to qt some cory cats and maybe some tetras or gouramis for my community tank. The thing is, I’ve got it set up really nicely in my room and I want to have it actually stocked. I definitely don’t want a betta, but I found some super cute guppies on gumtree (Wild Thai Orchid) that I can never find locally. How many guppies do u think I could get in the tank?? The seller only has 4 pairs, so is selling in pairs but not trios, so that could have an affect on the amount. I also plan on adding shrimp, either of a neo or caridina variety, or native - like dae or chameleons. 
      So my questions are: how many guppies could go in the tank (assuming they breed and I keep the babies in with them for about a month each time), could I fit in anything else (with a pair or 4), like a couple of chilli rasboras or rocket killies, and will the shrimps be enough for a cleanup crew, or should I add an Otto or something?
      Cheers!

      Hey guys, I thought I’d just make a single topic for my community tank, so I stop running around in other chats asking the same questions 😁. I’m going thru a big change in the tank at the moment, so will likely update in the morning with photos once the cloudiness is gone. Be prepared for a possibly very long message about a 10 hour process 😂.
      Cheerio!

      Hey guys, just found an add for this website showcasing a cool-lookin native algae eating shrimp.
      https://algaeeatingshrimp.com.au/products/australian-algae-eating-shrimp
      Anyone heard of these before or own any? My interest was peaked by the claim that they eat hair-type algae, as I have some on my crypts and lace fern that I cannot remove. And for a price of $4 ea, and super easy parameters, they sound pretty doable! 
      Tell me more oh great SKFians! 😁
      (or feel free to point me towards an already existing page)
      post-note: have you/do you keep these grubs? Seems like your sort of thing.
