I mostly followed their design I guess.

Mine is probably smaller as my copepod tank is smaller.

I have one of the strainers that fit on the end of a uptake pipe (screw in). Covered it in 90 micron fabric. That screwed into a coupling then pipe (which I did not glue in so that I can change the height as needed but fits tight). This comes to a coupling that is glued in a 'cup' which has 25 micron fabric. I can also raise or lower the height of the up pipe inside the cup.

I drop an airstone in the center and let it run. It works ok I think. I got less copepods then I expected but hard to tell if it is my culture or my collector.

I'll post a pic in a little bit if I can.

Here's my first copepod collector. I left one corner for pouring and so far haven't had the screens clog. If I need to I can add 2 more screens. The two small connector pipes are not glued so I can adjust the height. My current copepod tank isn't very tall. I can also unscrew the bottom screen which means I can replace it with a different size if I want something different.
