Soft Plumbing two Fluval Spec V (s)

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 This is my first post on nano reef even though I'm a stalker for several years and only signed up recently.

 I have a Pico Fluval Spec V  with a bunch of sps and some zoas . I had an idea of stacking another Fluval Spec V next to it and running a refugium but instead of drilling , I want to run the outlet of each pump into the other tank . My concern is that if the flow rate is off by a few ml I would eventually overflow one of the tanks ... the theory is to use float switches to stop overflowing .. dunno about the practical part.

Has anyone tried this before ? If so please help my idea come to life .  Any help/advice is greatly appreciated


 Tank specs:

Fluval Spec V  .Nanobox Tide mini . Hydor 214 with wavemaker 5secs on off cycle . Smart Micro Ato .

Tank inhabitants:

That's a pretty tank, and I love the way you have the magnifying glass set up!!


However, I am horrible when it comes to plumbing, hoping someone else will hop on here and help you out. :)
