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
