All we recently upgraded our classifieds to provide some really nice features

  • Youtube support – have a video display directly in your classifieds ad
  • Status of ad’s waiting approval via the website, you can see ad’s in the my ad’s section prior to approval
  • Confirmation that your ad has been posted prior to approval via email
  • Confirmation once your ad is approved via email
  • Pictures can now be resized during the upload process; a number of users had challenges resizing pictures. Well the website will now handle that for you.
  • All of our emails have been updated to communicate to users to correctly categorize hybrids, almost every hybrid that was posted on the site was never posted under the hybrid section (people seem to not like to call the fish they sell hybrids)

In my article, A Visit to Tank and his Amazing Fish Bins, I talked about a great deal I got on a large, 55-gallon plastic bins for growing out fish.

Here, I'll discuss how to double-plumb one of these bins to make water changes easy and to prevent accidental overfills. You can use this technique with just about any large container.

Here's what you'll need:

- Two one-inch bulkhead fittings
- One-inch PVC ball valve
- PVC Elbows
- Two PVC Barbed Connectors (for hose)
- One PVC barbed T Connector
- One inch ID flexible thin wall clear tubing

The actual parts you use may vary, but the basic principle is to drill two holes in the bin. One hole is the drain and other is the high-water level overflow. The high-water overflow bypasses the drain valve.

To drain the bin, you turn the valve at the bottom. To refill, turn the valve to off. The high-water level drain prevents flooding or may be used in a trickle system. The drain line runs to floor drain or sump pit for your home.
