Interesting mini tank design

Recommended Posts

This video shows the design of self-cleaning tanks for small laboratory fish.  It incorporates a lot of clever ideas.

We use something very similar at my school's zebra fish lab. I don't think it is the same company though. Basically works like a sump but with the over-flow at the bottom. Ours toped off with fresh water which I'm sure cost the university a fortune in water bills. That or it was coming out of our grants.

I'd like to get one of those tanks to see just how the self -cleaning feature works.  I'd like to adapt it  to an aquaponics tank.  I did finally find the tanks in the Pentair e-catalog, but no pictures. The systems they sell include elaborate filtration systems, so they are designed for recycling the water.

It would be cool for guppy (or other livebearers) fry racks with different size tanks for growing fry, birthing mothers and culling tanks etc.
