Betta Drip System

Worked on building a drip system for some betta tanks. Took me 15 hours to build this so far. This video is of the first run with all connections in place but not everything has been sealed tightly yet. You will probably notice a few leaks here and there. Tomorrow I will working on sealing off the ends of the 3/4 inch tubing and seal around the drain tubes from each betta tank. Hope to have this thing up and running 100% by the end of the week. In case your wondering what the heck this thing is? It is a filtration system designed to filter the water for 30 siamese fighting fish tanks (bettas). Each 'tank' is a plastic container that holds 2.2 quarts of water and will house 1 betta fish per tank. The water is pumped up through 3/4 inch tubing which has one outlet for each betta tank. The water enters the tanks and drains from an overflow tube back down into the sump tank at the bottom. I will upload a follow-up video when I get the system fixed for leaks and start and start adding fish.

I like the way you have it set up, but I have a question. How do you get rid of the waste at the bottom of each container?
Thanks in advance.

how did you seal the outlet so it does not leak?

+Wolfz Dragonz that line is just for overflow of the water, floating waste could still move into and get filtered by the sump system but most will be at the bottom the jars(tanks)

+zerobot002 oh ok..what about flushing system?can that waste move through the overflow pipe?

just stick one side of the airline tubing into the tank and have a bucket that is lower than the tank and just suck the end of the tube so that it uses suction power to draw the water out(waste) into the bucket.

I want to know where you got your containers for this barrack. If anyone knows please comment on me here. His are more clear than the ones i see at the stores I have visited.

Took two days to build working about 4 hours per day on it. I will not be posting any more videos since I no longer have the barracks. I needed room in the house for more tanks and replaced the barracks with a 38 gallon and a 30 gallon tank to house my wife's fish. :) I have started keeping marine reef tanks now, as well.

@fbrinson Question: Why the two drip lines to the same container?
Frank Brinson
Frank Brinson - 10 years ago
The total cost was around $300 including the 1 gallon containers I purchased to replace the smaller containers shown in the video. I already had the water pump which cost about $75. I built the entire system in 2 days working on it around 4-5 hours per day.

Updated video to come. I have changed a few things on the setup: Upgraded to larger containers. Now using 1 gallon jars. Switched from a plastic tub to a 10 gallon sump tank. Added an UV sterilizer to control algae growth Changed to lighting over from that harsh standard flourescent bulb to a colormax bulb. Added a HOB filter to the sump since the sponge filter was inadequate. Entire system now contains about 22 gallons.

It took two days and a lot of trips to Lowes and Home Depot. I have since changed out the 'tubs' to food grade plastic 1 gallon jars. It gives the bettas a lot of room to swim around and they seem happier. We successfully bred some bettas about a week ago but lost all the fry two days after they hatched. Will continue to try tho.
