DIY carbon/sediment or w.e filter :-D

Well, this was one of those things where your walking around Lowes, and you go hmm...

Total cost about $14+ a power head of your choice, some aquarium safe silicone and a dab of superglue. This one is an Aqua clear 70.

looks cool to me. Is it for tank water or for new water?

Why not get the plastic housing for the carbon filter and get tubing for input and output and have it be external?

Eh, then again that's over complicating it a bit.. xD
