DIY Gravel Vac
Ok, so I was on a budget for the tank. So...I decided that a gravel vac was a great place to save some money.
I started out by picking whqat would be the nozzle for the vacuum. I decided on the top half of a water bottle. So I cut it right below the label, SAVING the cap. I then took said cap to my local Lowe's and got some clear plastic tubing, matched it to be right about the right size for the cap. I came home, and CAREFULLY!!!, drilled a hole in the cap, just a tad smaller than the tubing, so that I would have a good seal. Then I inserted the tubing into the cap, as close to the top as I could, screwed the cap back on, and viola! Gravel vac for about $2! I will post pics soon. BTW: it works great!
