ok while having my lunch just now, i had this weird idea of trying to run a canister filter 2800 ltr/ hr from 3 X 3ft aquariums.

Would that be possible/feasible? worthwhile?

At the moment each of those only have a bubbler ( just bubbles thing), and 2 sponge filters.

Aquarium 1 - father with fry experiment (probably only going to attach the canister for it when fry are grown)

Aquarium 2 - maybe subdivide and create compartments for individual males

Aquarium 3 - female community tank?

at the moment 2 & 3 are still unsure. but would be nice if that one pump could do all those 3 aquariums :blink:

let me know your thoughts! thanks!

I wouldn't run that on 3 tanks for bettas. 2800L is a lot of flow. Maybe for 3x standard 4ft tanks I would run 2800L cannister.

I would buy a large air pump and run sponge filters off them. The larger the better because you can run more tanks down the track ^_^ You can adjust the flow right down when breeding and then turn them back up. You can use the airpump to run a filter for a QT tank as well. I have used one large pump to run 4 x 2ft tanks and supply bubbles to a 4ft. Only uses one power outlet too!
