In contrast, the one that SM shows toward the end of his thread tops out at $600 and removes more nitrate, plus phosphate, ammonia, nitrite, heavy metals, etc. If you make your own, which I am going to do (my Dad works with Acrylic) you can do it for really cheap.

I've got my design down and will post a sketch to show you how I'm going to implement it, and I expect it will cost less than $200.
Can't wait to see it. will it be stand alone or will it go in your sump. I am planning a modular sump/refuge so I can add as I go easily.
