    Conclusion for today....dophin 7500 double outlet air pump won't supply 6x double sponge filters (6x 50l tanks) (1 outlet x3 tanks) with air.So I guess it's to LFS tomorrow and considering a compressor.

    looking good ... hope you have non-return valves on those air-pumps or that they will be mounted above the tanks. In theory it should not matter with airpumps like these but running spliters could cause a little flow between tanks and then straight onto the floor.

    Think you are going to run into the normal stacking problem .... lovely to look at a tank at eye level, bugger to work on it at that level.

    Works like a charm.Only running 5 tanks so far,still need to hook up another 7(one day).Noise ain't too bad,messured 67 decibels directly next to compressor, I can live with it.R800....worth every cent.

    If you want it quieter put a 10 mm pipe at the back inlet . It can be 20 cm or longer . Makes a big difference

    This is the progress to date...and a better pic.
    Basically everything is done,went down smooth besides a couple of sore fingers:).
    Getting the rest of the equipment by next week so everything will run by next weekend.Only other thing that I want to do is add some magnetic sheets or wood panels in the front to cover up the space between lights/top of shelves and tanks water level.

    don't forget the glass tops .. stops the jumpers and keeps the evaporation down.

    Nice clean setup ...
