Customer Question

Connection overflow diagram Hello I live in Florida, I have been raising prawn shrimps successfully in the outside, now I have to move them to my garage and some will go into the 55 gallons barrels as shown in picture attached. Can you please suggest a
diagram on what is the best way to connect all the barrels together with the filter, here is the filter description, please note that I will not be using a water pump unless you instructed me to do that
so I have one 55 gallons and another 35 gallons drums, I would like to connect them all together and leave a room for expansion if I want to add another barrel, maybe something like that: I will not add any plants
or growing beds to make things simple, please indicate if the hoses coming from the filter(in and out) should be in the same height or the inlet should be lower than the outlet. Thanks

I wish you the very best in your business...your question however will not cover the engineering you need create a system where diseases are eliminated, especially indoors without the sun.

I doubt that you will want to spend the $500 I charge for such designs, but I will submit the offer none the less... lacking that, there is a wealth of data on google you can easily access.

There is a lot more involved than simple water circulation, You wil need CAD drawings of a proper set up, the drawings alone would take me a day.

Let me know what you think...
