Rain?

I need some ideas. I have a powerhead, and am looking for a nice way to use it to make rain in my 40 breeder. I have used spraybars, but want something more along the lines of drops as opposed to steady streams. Would be nice to have it along the back half of the tank.

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Also, here is a short description with some pics as to how i built the DIY rain system: The Planted Tank Forum - View Single Post - Philip's 90 Gallon - UPDATE 7/31/2012 (FTS P.86)

It wasn't perfect, but it worked well for what i was trying accomplish.

LED Daylight/Moonlight lighting
2 Goldy's, 5 Ruby Barbs

Re: Rain?

These examples are great but so far I haven't seen where the water comes from. Where is the entire blueprint?

Re: Rain?

That is what I am looking for. I found one that I like, but it needs a strong pump.

The design isn't mine so don't have blueprint. However, it appears to be a garden drip watering system which operate with 20-40 lbs of pressure. So, you could hook it up to house tap water, pump water in from a reserve tank or use a strong recirculation pump.
