its an array of tanks that are filtered and maintained by an external sump system that contains the filter material and heater. so no cables in tanks, just small hoses (one drainage and one uptake tubing) a drip system is also called barracks

i sorted the problem with the noise can recommend this to anyone doing what i did;

got thin hoses, cut em short to fit between garden hose and water surface (i left a few millimeters), cut lil round holes into garden hose and stuck thin hose in. sealed it with sealant. done! no more splashing!!! totally quite!




also, a picture of how a made a stopper for the end of hose for the last section!

it's given me an idea for when i change my tank
to cichlids later this year.
i have an internal filter that is rather powerful,and the hose idea
will fit perfectly for the extra water movement,
i actually can;t thank you enough for this idea.
