back at it with carpets went on a coral binge for awhile there lol here is my gigantea flushing tank thought I’d share since it works very well. It is a 75 gallon tank drilled low, it can be drained through a siphon at a bulk head. The tank drains completely exposing the nems to air for an hour so they can expel any gross water trapped inside them from shipment. I only fill with about 20 gallons at a time. This works great as it forces the Nem to deflate when you add new water this signals to the anemones to inflate again. Sometimes the water has to be changed a few times a day but this is a great method of flushing carpets. If you choose to use antibiotics this also helps ensure the anemones absorb the medication.

The heater is on a water lever sensor it goes off when the water level drops this is important as to not fry your heater also your system should be on battery back up :) because of the low bulk head fitting and because we don’t want to use a check valve :)
