    a sump
    Red lines shows how the flow should work (there is like 2-3mm openning) on each side of glass

    not sure if u can see cos i had to resize it, drawing on a 27inch is not easy

    hehe @Charles thought you would of liked it.
    Iv been looking at this type of thing since last year on youtube and goggle
    I also had someones idea but think the tank fell into the big tank and 6 of them killed each other
    so decided to go with this one, thought about it and then told Shawn at petsto and he made it happen

    looks great. i tried to divide a tank up and the bettas still managed to slip past the dividers. so my bettas ended up breeding without intent.

    yes i be keeping males ( i think the first compartment with the hole, the current will be too strong to make the betta happy)
    unless I can get a very slow flow pump.
    I have my males inside the big tank now, and his been naughty, been mating with the female and no bubble next :D

    @windfire, that 4ft is now up and running. Tell you this though, I will never repair a tank again, it's too costly, I could've bought a new tank on what I spent on repairing that one and the slides for the sliding top. I have not even bought the tops yet.
