Im thinking of trying my hand at a DIY canister filter for my 30 gallon.
Im a huge DIY'r and love this stuff. I actually plan to try building a cool acrylic tank this spring (I have a good work space away from the house in a huge garage/shed). Ive done almost every DIY project you can imagine. Just finished concrete counters for my downstairs kitchen recently. Completely rebuilt from stud the entire lower level of my raised ranch.
Id like to eventually use this on that tank should it be functional, which will be bigger but not sure on the gallons yet.
I watched videos and read up and it seems easy except finding a decent pump. I would like to get a decent GPH
I pretty much have all the materials to make it already in my house.
Has to work un submerged and hopefully be around 40$ give or take....
is this plausible? Most of the pumps I see are 100$ plus and for that I can buy a canister with UV
sterilization built in.
