Minimum water drop height for consistent flow?

1 post in this topic

I'm building a specific type of shrimp farming system and incorporating a bunch of aquaponics techniques, though my main issue is height requirements. I'm putting my "tank" on a work bench which is about 2'4" off the ground. The tank I'm building is going to be very long and wide (40'x8') and about 2/3' tall. My overflow will end up being about 3' tall, giving me 3' to work with. My question is, whats the minimum height difference I can have between one end of the pipe and another to have consistent water flow. 1", 2"? I realize I'll need to do a bunch of digging, but this will highly influence how much digging I do.
