Use the white shell as focus. The pink one behind it and the pink one pointing toward it both have mega in them. Midnight on Day 12.

Re: Kreisel Tank Setup Diagram

Renroc, what will you use to adhere the PVC to the side of the tank? After a while, silicone sealant will break over time. So interested to know. Do you plan to "cap" it with PVC ends using PVC glue and then using a "Stand" to support and hold the pipe upright? And at the same time, allow access to ...

An air pump to deliver the air. I am planning on using the black risers for garden irrigation sprinklers as the tube to deliver. With normal air hose to the pump.

Re: Kreisel Tank Setup Diagram

I made a diagram for future me to build off of, and ask questions. (I plan on attempting getting zoea/megalopa to land when I'm an adult.) Mainly I would just like some general feedback and help as to if I'm on the right track here. https://68.media.tumblr.com/f12e011af42a0e02e794c304f29177d5/tumbl...

Thanks for all the birthday wishes folks. Just keep your fingers (and toes) crossed that some of this lot survive to land.
