I don't know what I am looking at, but it seems to be like a internet wet/dry I don't know what the pump in the middle is for.
The middle pump is to pump dirty water through the pipe. The two side pumps suppose to bring the clean water and through the rain pipe plus to create current in the tank. What do u mean internet wet and dry? Are those tanks on pic yours? very nice
By chance u have pics from every angles and what componets are used there?

Hahaha, I mean internal. Hahaha Internet wet/dry.


No, those tanks are other peoples. They are running an internal wet/dry. You don't need the middle pump if the wet/dry is right next to the tank. If you are talking about these, I can tell you how to build one. I don't have a digital camera or a scanner. But mine 300 gal goldfish tank runs on the internal wet/dry.

1. Pressurised water chamber (pushed by middle pump) so it will create spray effect. Bacterias obviously need much of oxygen. So we dont wanna submerge the bio balls but instead we let them make contact w/air, which has more oxygen content than water. Spraying the bio balls will create very thin layers of water on the surface of the bio balls where the bacterias should flourish more rapidly. And from my understanding, this is what many aquarists mean by wet/dry filters.

2. Water spray

3. Heater coil

4. UV rays to kill unwanted bacterias, parasite, fungus, viruses, algae, dan harmful pathogens

5. Filtered water output by drilling bunch of holes on the glass/acrylic plate.

Well that's the idea... :smile:

Well, that is basically an internal wet/dry. The water doesn't sit in it, it flows to the drip plate and drips down. The water is pushed into the filter because of the displacement of the water being pushed into the tank by the pump. IMHO, I believe the internal wet/dry is a better design because it requires one less pump, and the spraying is done my a drip plate instead of a pressured "what-ca-got-there."
