i was thinking about making my own cannister filter. i was going to get a powerhead(rated at a decently high level) and run a hose off the output and out of the tank. then get a sealable containter(like a 2 gal
container) and drill a hole into the bottom side and attach a fitting for the hose. stack all the media i want into the container then put the out put hose coming out of the top of it with another fitting and run it back into the tank. this would be for a smaller tank like 10-20 gal
. and as long as the pump i get has a decent GPH
rate i cant se why it wouldnt work. whenever u want to clean it just pop the sealable top and clean the media thenj put it back n and prime the system. maybe 30 bucks for the powerhead and fittings and hose and container. sound logical or am i missing something?
