Brilliant…can wait to see the final assy. Is there anyway you can publish a drip parts list and maybe some links to get the parts as well as the pump and pressure relief valve switch. Also I noticed you used some epoxy putty to seal some gutter caps. Any reason you used this instead of aquarium safe silicone ? Awesome project. keep up the good work. One last question….are you gluing to light these up ? thanks.

J Lathem says:

You could just keep a few small paper binders near the breeder boxes that you could use to pinch off the tube if you need to stop the flow for any reason.

how do you prefend fry go into the drainer i have marine box to and the fry swim trought the plastic holders even with poly filter(white wattes ) they swim in it and get stuck (rainbowfry)

Mitchell Broome says:

You might run into a problem with lack of pressure to the top boxes if you run 1/4″ line all the way up. I would suggest running the 1/2″ pvc up the side and tee off at each shelf down to the 1/4″. I had to go that route when I setup a rack of 10G tanks. It was hard to regulate the pressure the same from the closest by the pump to the furthermost away.
