Drains and return mocked up. Just need to figure out what pump to get. I'm second guessing the 3/4in drains.
I'm running a Jebao DC control pump on the 260g but I don't know what size it is as there are no labels. If I were sure of what size I would consider stealing it for the rack and just running a mag 9.5 on the 260 temporarily.

Sump just needs to cure. I dropped the tube off call and it landed tip down and cracked :swear:PXL_20210530_010308236.jpgPXL_20210530_010254911.jpgPXL_20210530_003056801.jpgPXL_20210530_003036415.jpg

Well, bugger. Three 3/4in drains are to much for 1 1/4in pipe. I'm going to have to rethink the drains 🤪

Reworked the drains into a double down spout collector. I may have to do four down spouts once the last two tanks are brought into the system. Set up a 4g/hr pressure compensating drip emitter for an auto water change. Test will be to see if the controller works.

Interesting design; one thing that always concerned me about a shared filtering system is disease or whatever that impact one tank is now shared with all the tanks. I've been considering whether i should share a sump between two 400 gallon tank and keep thinking it is safer to keep the two tanks isolated. Of course this ignores the fact that one tank needs to run at 82 and the other 78.

Rainbows spawned again. Fingers crossed if their fertile. Female spawned with one of the juveniles.
