I am able to collect my own food also and have a 15 gal feeder tank run by a aquaclear 400. I used to run it with an undergravel with a powerhead and a bubble filter but it was crashing constantly after a collecting trip. The new filter keeps up very nicely although with the cold weather collecting is limited so it's back to the bait shop and acouple petshops that give me a discount. What species do you collect for food? I love that pic of the squid! He's beautiful!!!
Hi, this is Mrs Dingo here. We caught 3 different species of crab, some boxer shrimp (which the lionfish lurvs to chase) and we also picked up a hitch hiker or two (a lil blennie and a small catfish of some type), not to mention a 10 legged starfish!
We have 2 50g drums out the back yard which we have SW delievered into, so water changes arent a problem. After losing the PJ squid to nasty water, i'm right on top of the water change situation hehehe.
