Since I decided to go with Dace instead of the Killies or Mummichogs, I put the other tank on hold for use at a future time. I have been working on this new design. Here is the work in progress:

Fun experience this morning. I decided my newer pumps did have the enough flow, so I broke out one of my older pumps. Well apparently there was a bit of stray voltage. That was quite the shock.

I’ve had that happen to me also, but with saltwater.
GFCI can save your life.
I like the idea. I’ve got a couple 40 longs I’m considering doing a stream tank sometime also.
Keep posting the progress pics.

Yah I have to hook it into the GFCI, I put in. I've been shocked 2 times in my life once about 5 years ago, and the other about 12, but those were very minor nothing like this. Lesson learned for sure.

Continue progress with the tank. The pump and tube are temporary (no that is not the pump that shocked me, that is now in the trash):
