Easy fix no problem.

Pipe, end cap, hose barb adapter, section of tubing and 2 magnetic thermometer holders. Saw, Drill press, Dremel, and assorted sand paper. I had most of everything needed in the handy Rubbermaid tub of assorted "fish junk". All the raw materials can be found at Ace, Lowes, Menards, etc...... The most expensive items will be the magnetic holders but heck everyone should have a dozen or so of them laying around. One of those must add items to any internet purchase.

Often the power head will come with various adapters so you can skip purchasing a hose barb or instance. Might have to do a little modification with the dremel to get a good slip fit. I don't glue any of it, makes cleaning much easier. Fairly straight forward and a quick project.

go to walmart and buy one of those outside mister sprayers for cooling down outside. shorten it to fit any tank. the fish in my tanks love it and it also imitates rain for there breeding period.
