    That was a great video! I've never seen that method of trimming ground cover, great idea!

    Fantastic tanks as always, Thank you for sharing the tips!

    Amazing, this is the first time I see where you have all the tanks placed in the house.
    Tom, in minute 4:12 I see a couple of rigid tubbings on the top of the prefilters, ¿what are those for?

    Regards.

    Those let the air out so the herbie doesn't make a lot of noise.

    Great video, I need to move to SF :)

    CPR overflows have a continuous removal of air so the siphon is maintained. The Tom's aqualifter pump removes any bubbles that get in there.
    This makes for a thin discrete overflow rather than tubes or a built in design.

    As you can see, the tanks are all very different, but the equipment and light are similar.
    And they are within the living space, so the wife, kids, friends, all can enjoy them daily.

    I can work on them while a tease my daughter, or while they eat dinner or etc.

    We do not have a TV anywhere except my office and that's rarely used, just for Cartoons once a week for 1 hour.

    I do not watch TV.

    You don't need the TV with that living room :)
    So Tom, the Tom's pump removes the air from the overflow siphon, but I was wondering if 2 the drains to the wet-dry works in a full siphon because they're partially submerged, does this make them less turbulent?

    I can't die before going to your house!
    Regards

    Great to see the tanks in the living space. Rarely get to see that. Can't wait to get a big tank ! And I wish I lived on the west coast. Better waves, better fish shops and better weather ! :)

    I had the same problem couldn't watch it on my iPhone. But it is worth getting to a computer to watch it! Great looking aquariums. Wish they would've done some on the Buce tank tho.
