I'm looking through some of the stuffs which the farm is throwing away and I manage to salvage the R.O container. So with some pvc joints, hot blower and drilling the final product is rather satisfying with test run on my 1800L/hr pump.

A brief explanation

I stuff a thick layer of wool in there thus a stronger flowrate is preferred to help push the water all through.

The idea is to pre-filter the water from tank before entering the chiller since no canister to run with.

After a while I decided to add on another one but filled with media stacked nicely in there. And also I changed the joints to ehiem parts which I manage to salvage among the thrash.

It's neater now

Ooh... I thought it was something like seaview or OTF.. but i guess those arent really 'farms'.. Cool! I have a voilet fusion aro in a 6 footer... It would be cool to have a shrimp breeding farm in s'pore but i guess we'll leave that to japan and taiwan and everyone else who could do a better job :)

Yup. We are mainly arowana production. Shrimp keeping is just my only hobby in the farm. :)
