and some other things needed and do it. I just want to be sure it's worth it.
As for the plan of it I figured out a way to get 3 chambers out of it using just the basket the aquaclear comes with for the media. In terms of what to put in there I was thinking LR
where the inlet pipe is, then a sponge filter, followed by cheato (or other macro algae) in the last section with 3 strips of LEDs that will fit under the original filter top. I'd paint the filter top black so no light would shine out of the grated top. To prevent anything from getting out I would take the bottom of the filter basket and silicone it to the output of the filter standing up so I looks like a fence.
I saw a few people do similar things, im just not sure if its worth it. What do you think?
