@OFL: what's a python? I know you're not talking about snakes
How many snails do you need to "clean" a 1g tank .... I still can't figure out how to clean the plants without pulling them out.
Combined filter system - copy.jpg
A : Tank – Any size tanks can be used. They can even be different sizes. As long as the top level is the same and the first (pump) and the last tanks big enough for the pump and or filter. You can also use a smaller tank for the end tank and use it only as a filter.
B : Water pump – since betas don’t need big currents, a small filter can be used as long as it is powerful enough to pump water to the last tank.
C : Filter – You can use 1 or 2 filters. Filter 1 is attached to the pump, while filter 2 is placed in the last tank. 1 Filter is adequate if the set up isn’t too long.
D : PVC pipes – cut and shaped into an upside down “U” which siphon whatever poop or left over food and relays it to the filter. It also levels the water surface in all the tanks.
E : PVC pipes – to pump water to the last tank. Make a hole above each tank so water can flow into each tank.
The arrows shows the water flow
If the water flow is too strong, you can turn off the pumps during feedings.
I’m not sure about heaters though because I’ve never used them. Perhaps this setup can only be used in warm rooms. Or maybe use heaters in every second tank …. Not sure, you’d have to test temp. to see how to use them.
Accidents go with the territory of driving. Your instincts will grow as you gain more experience....... you should try driving in my country, you'd freak out even before you reach the main road.
Parents (mother) yelling their heads off is totally normal. She loves you and doesn't want anything bad to happen to you. And mothers are more paranoid than fathers.
As stated above, no one was hurt.....
