Just starting with the Softshell crab shedding. Don't know anywhere to buy a shedding tank so thinking of building one. I want to setup a closed tank system. I'm only starting out with a 4x8 tank for now until I'm more familiar with it. What type of pump do I need?

any pump that can run contiuous and will handle salt water. I use a Bell and Gosett quantec but most pool filter pumps should work.

Ok thanks. How deep do you keep the water in your tank? I know it shouldn't be deep at all but didn't know exactly how much

The spill tube which the controls the depth is about 6 inches so the water is about 6'' deep and the sides of my tank are 12''.
