Re: [Koifun] Rearing Koi in Fiberglass tank
[In reply to]
OK I now understand how this "Hiblow" works, my only concern is that the currents may stress out the kois, did you use some kind of timer device to turn it on/off or is it running all the time? Do you think turning it on for 10 mins every 2 hours is enough? I have a conern on the suspended waste, I would rather it be kept at the bottom and not be left swrilling around - any comments?
The pipe matrix was my original solution, what you described is quite exact. In theory it should work, but my installation didn't. I used 30mm pipes with 8mm holes at 80mm intervals, perhaps I should use smaller pipes, 5mm holes at 120 mm intervals, this may just increase the suction presure - will try this out when time permits. If you are interested in the outcome I can keep you posted.
