what are the tanks combined volume? connecting tanks via piping or a "tube" is not a new idea, they're just not very common,

Hey Marto

I've been to Erdington several times, and those 'connected' tanks are really cheap nasty plastic hex tanks, probably each side is only about 30L if that.

Having said that, the store itself is fantastic - great selection of fish, they have won the Practical Fishkeeping Magazine Top 40 UK Shops award several times. In particular they have an amazing plec selection. Smile

hmm the only thing I would ever get a tank like that for would be to optimise viewing of fish that like to be on the glas like chinese hill stream loach.

They have a giant version of that at the rainforest cafe by where I live except they are round and you can walk under the connecting tube (it's in the entrance). they have a lot of cool saltwater fish in it.
