This project chronicles the design and construction of a small scale recirculating water tank for the purpose of studying biological hydrodynamics. Currently available systems were analyzed and studied prior to developing a new, cost effective design that provides laminar flow through a two foot test section. Construction details provide the information for duplicating a low cost water tank for fluid flow and visualization.
