    Double sump would be great.. sure can't hurt.

    Dursos are good drain setups for tanks - really quiet, may or may not be the right thing for you, but here is all the info you need right here:

    Thanks Urban. Things are still looking good and I have clowns in tanks 2 and 3 that appear to be showing some mating behaviors, so I hope in another month or so, we'll have eggs .

    I visited the fish farm my brother works at last night, and noticed that all the overflows have a fine netting wrapped around them so nothing goes in thats larger than the mesh of the screen.
    Also, he said they were starting to breed clowns at their saltwater facilty and they use pieces of tile in their breeding tanks and the clowns cover them with their eggs.
    Hope you can use some of this

    The person that he works for owns several in the state of Florida. The saltwater facility is in Ruskin. As far as a name.. I'll have to ask, it's supposed to be the largest in the state.

    Deleted all my photos in my album because of the wierd file names they had. I am going to try to reorganize, relabel and reload the pics. We'll see how that goes.
