Ted’s Fish Room – Water

At long last!!!!  Here is the next installment to the Ted’s Fishroom series on the topic of water.  There is no way the topic of water can be covered well in an hour-long video, much less a five minute video!  This is just the basics of what to think about, and one way that I make the onerous job of water changing just a little easier.  One of my New Year resolutions is to automate water changing in my fish room this year, and if I manage to get it done I will be sure to post a video blog series about how I did it.

    Hi. I just wan’t to leave a question: how do you build those self-leveling siphons?
    Thanks in advance,
    Pedro.

      Hi Pedro,
      Basically, all you are doing is making two loops of pvc pipe with the entrance and exit both pointing down. The size of the loops is really up to you. The top of the second loop will be entirely out side the tank, and it is the top of this loop that determines the level of the water inside the tank. There needs to be an opening at the top of that second loop. I use an open T-fitting, but you can also just drill a small hole in the top of the loop. Here is a good YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65yVr7DiDls

    Hi. Thanks for the video. I’ll try to build one. By the way, I forgot to say that your website is great, it has a lot of excellent information compacted onto one place.
