Sump: 3 Black recycling bin type containers

Refugium: yep, one of the drums

Refugium Lighting: We'll see

Support systems:

System Water: Natural salt water

Display Water circulation: I may add some tunzes...

I actually bought four off those traps, seeing as they pretty much work like a Kestril tank (spelling fo pa), i thought i could trap four different baby lots...and have them in a rearing tank with live food...Nano, bbs and the like...?

Keeping the babies away from any tank water changes while still keeping them feed, meh its worth a shot and a bit of fun.

Its a bad day to be the back glass pane of a 4ft tank... :furious: :wall: :konk: :( :bored: :bawling: :bawling: :(

Well the next thing to order is another tank... then re-drill/install the weir... god I'm an idiot sometimes :konk: :bawling:

I was going to have it all done tonight... I thought this was all running too smoothly.

Hope it gets sorted quick! The setup looks so diy but amazingly functional at the same time! I really look forward to seeing the end product! Maybe one day I can buy some peps from you! :D
