Water Bridge

I've already admitted that I have MTS (multi-tank syndrome) - and I have to admit that I'm rather proud of myself tonight. I went to the big box fish store and did not buy any tanks. I also did not buy any fish (although I looked long and hard at the Koi Angelfish). I did get the proper light for the 10 gal tank (they were out of them last time I visited) and a decoration for the hospital tank.

I'm still trying to figure out how the saltwater tank is going to fit in the house with everything else. It's still empty and I need to determine its place before I put anything in it. I'm not too tickled about where I first placed it. So I have a lot of design and redesign going on in my head.

There are a lot of variables to consider. First - where does it fit? The tank is 3 feet long - so its location needs to be planned carefully. It can't go against any wall that has a baseboard heater. And it can't go against any wall that doesn't have an electrical outlet. Its current location works for both of those items, but it is not very visible. I can see the other 4 tanks from where I'm sitting - and I would need to go into another room to see the saltwater tank. This means I'm doing mental gymnastics to rearrange everything in the house to find a place. My tape measure is currently my best friend.

Since one problem is not enough to occupy my mind (apparently), my MTS has suddenly created a new idea to consider - a mult-tank bridge.

This is the coolest thing! I would love to have that between two tanks and watch the fish swim back and forth between the tanks. However, these are not sold - they must be created. I'm not really confident that I can create a DIY refugium for the salt water tank, much less one of these. However - I wish I had this:

And as we know - anything that can be done will be taken to the extreme by someone:

I think these images say enough... Enjoy.
