The larger aquarium is all set up and connected to the wall. I’ve run 1½” black PVC pipe from the plant wall out in the sun porch through the wall to the left end of the aquarium. The pump is in the right end with the hose for the pump using a separate hole high in the wall level with the top of the plant wall.
With the new larger tubing I had to put additional slits in the gutter stand pipe to prevent the gutter from overflowing.
I traded the pleco for a very much smaller one. I bought five small neon tetra to give the two babies I already had a school and I bought two more catfish for a total of four. With the guppies and adult neon tetra I have about 25 fish in the aquarium.
My next step is to get the sump built so I can maintain the water level in the aquarium when the wall is being watered, dose the wall separate from the aquarium and top the water up without adding water directly to the aquarium.
