DIY question

Hello guys,

i have a used 10G tank that i want to turn into a filter for my new fish tank, which will be around 30G. I was wondering is this something that is doable? Also, if it is, how can i do it.

I would love link to videos or step by step tutorials.

Thanks for the help guys and gals!

have a wonderful day!

Look up sumps. There's tons and tons of info but that's basically what you are looking to do.

The tank under the tank acts as a filter. Water is drained down, sent through, then pumped back into the tank.

The safe way to do this is by drilling the upper tank. If thats something you dont want to do, id recommend against trying this out.
