Could you use the sump in conjunction with your other water movement plans?
I am not familiar with that set up so don't know what it would entail. My
guess is the sump tank underneath could increase your water volume and be
used to help keep the water more clean. In a tank I was trying to create a
river like flow, and used power heads, bubble up UG lift tubes, and also had
a drip type filter. The drip filter didn't do anything for the current, but
I thought it would help clean the water.

Is there a similar looking , maybe closely related, and acting darter you
could use in its place? By the sounds of your set up, you could learn some
interesting things about how these guys live, and maybe it could help in
understanding the Tuskaloosa's. Has there been anyone studying how
adaptable this specie is? Your interest and observations could help this
fish more than hurt it.

Once it is done, post pictures!
