This image shows how we set up the air lifts to filter and circulate water so we do not damage the live stock that hatches from dried cysts. To save money the Bubbles and Sun Project will use only compressed air and Sunlight to grow corals. The cutting tanks will be only 5 inches deep. link to pages about making low cost coral farming tanks and they will use this same set of airlifts.

This system will have an overflow box on the end of the top row to hook both rows together. We will show you how to build several this semester. The box will go on the right end of the top row. The pump from the bottom to the top will use a long air lift that will extend to the floor. it will take water from the bottom down to the lowest point and the air will be injected at the lowest point
