Well I just bagged up all my fish and I'm meeting fellow member KadenJames. She'll be watching them for me while I re-do my fish room.

The current design for my new barracks is putting rows of jars in plastic tubs. Each jar will have holes drilled for overflow. The water dripping into the jars will cause them to overflow and the water will drip out of the jars into the tubs. The tubs will have a drain on one end and will be slightly elevated on the opposite side for easier draining. Then the overflow water will go down into a huge plastic tub with smaller tubs fill of filter material and heaters and a few sponge filters. The dirty overflow water will travel through this and then be shot back up into the tubing by a pond pump.

Also managed to find an RO unit for $50 vs $150+ so I'll be getting one of those as well :D

Okay fish are gone. I only have two left and two coming tomorrow. Gonna be a good project to start on and rearrange the fish room.

Special thanks to KadenJames on the forum for watching my fish while I re-do everything and get the barracks set up.

You have no idea lol. Dragging big tanks out is a killer lol. Bleaching them is nerve wracking lol.

It would be really neat to see picture updates as you go. Kinda like a guide for others who may want to attempt this (or a warning to them )

Will do. I, still, keep changing my mind about the design. I want to be able to hold a good number of fish without pushing the bio load.

I've been contemplating future barrack design using plastic mesh cages so that the water can move through themand waist falls through them. Still in the planning stages though...

I'm starting mine tomorrow. Making room for a shelf and bleaching tanks.

My barracks are going to hold 15 fish on each side, for a total of 60 vs the original 48.

Though I might end up making two barracks since R/O is supposed to increase spawn size.
