The first thing I was taught about keeping fish was DIY...
With a neighbor with tons of extra plumbing parts, an aquarium, and the DIY bug. Oh! I forgot some beers. Those make a project interesting to say the least.
I've never been happy with most HOB
filters, and canisters are too expensive IMHO
. So I decided to go DIY, but had a hard time finding a design on the net I liked. (Mostly due to a small surface area on the filter media). I designed one myself with the main idea of surface area of the mechanical filter.
Since I got some ideas from the net, and a open source guy. I wanted to post my plans on the net here.
Please, honest options! I'm always open to improvements.
