Your idea is overkill for that size tank. A standard HOB filter and the gravel on the bottom of the tank would be more than enough biofilter for 10 gal with 5 little fishys.

but if you are like me of course, I have to tinker and make trippy new stuff too, needed or not.


With that sized filter at least you wont have to worry much about getting one to many fish.

These sumps seem like a bit much for a 10g FW, am i right?

Will my idea work for my simple endeavor?

Should I instead put it like this?

It should work, but I would agree, for a 10g+a HOB, that is kinda overkill :P

well, those flat containers are cheap, make a couple a few different ways and see what works best.
I have piles of "didn't work so well" pieces.
LOL

here is a thing kinda like yours I made years ago, it actually worked very well. I got a big 2 gal watering can with a spout that was long enough to be usable, packed the inside with plastic pot scrubbers (I love those things) and then pumped water from the tank into the can, and placed the spout where it would flow back into the tank.

It took up to much room but it was fun to watch work.

Hey thats a cool idea too. Maybe even making a legit fountain, next to a tank as a filter would be cool.
