bait tank question?

  1. Good news. I am moving out of my apartment into a house. Now I will have a cool basement I can build a bait tank in. I can get plastic 55 gal drums from work and was wondering what you guys might suggest for circulation and filtration. Thanks
  2. in the bait shop i use gold fish pond pumps 40 to 70 dollers at tfc then run that threw bucket filled with pellow batting drill holes in the bottem of bucket for evan more add a layer of carbon

  3. A $20 bilge pump will do the same thing. It won't take much for a 55 gallon tank.
  4. Mr Twister, you probably want to sterilize those barrels, soak with baking powder solution and then scrub with salt....keep 'em swimmin'
  5. thanks guys. I'll let you know how it works out.
