I'm building my boyfriends fishtank a filter. I dont have any more money right now and his fish really need a larger tank. His friend just gave him one not sure exact size but its smaller than my 37gal. I have the old pump to my tank but here is my delema. Here is my pump and what it was attatched too. How do I make a filter out of this? P.S please exuse the mess. Just did a water change and installed a brand new filter.

Building such a small filter will probably end up costing you just as much as grabbing a new one.

One thing you can look into is Kaldness K1. Using it as a fluidized bed filter can handle a large bio load. I'll see if I can find (and attach) a YouTube link of what I mean.
