So it all started when Petco had the $1 a gallon sale recently and I purchased two ten gallon tanks with the intention of quarantine tanks.
Then my Magenta pseudochromis decided he just had to kick the crap out of everyone else in the tank, so he now enjoys a tank with only a coral banded shrimp and a hermit for company.
Then I received some orphaned Neon Tetras and was forced to keep them in a small Betta tank, which the Betta was none too happy about.
so last Friday night being bored and having consumed too much caffeine I set out to give those little Neons a place to call home.
So I took the other ten gallon and having fashioned an internal chamber filter for it;
and a basic undergravel out of corrugated plastic.
This stuff is great as you can cut it very easily and use it for myriad purposes.
The first chamber is filled with filter floss, ~150 ml of Purigen, filter sponge. second is filled with Fluval ceramic and Seachem Matrix, the third is stuffed with plastic scrubbers and the return pump.
Have a similar set-up on the salt 10, but with more chambers and can fit a protein skimmer if needed.
This is how it looked at first when I was figuring out the scape;
here is the end result;
