A couple months ago my mom entered me into a science fair. I immediately thought of aquariums for my project. I had been toying with the idea of making an all in one filter that would include a filter, a heater, and a co2 reactor.
This was my first version.
After not being able to find large and cheap enough pvc I scraped the idea and came up with this.
We built it… and it failed miserably.
I couldn’t prime it because I didn’t have proper double taps. And then the heater leaked. No not from around the heater but from the heater itself. The knob wasn’t water tight. We tried everything and it wouldn’t work. I didn’t exactly win the science fair with that
Now that it is summer I still want to make this idea work. After seeing iamjohnny75’s all in one filter I got a new idea. I realized that I could buy a used/broken Fluval and drill a hole in the side for the heater and co2. This time I would buy Jager heater so it wouldn’t leak. The media could act as a co2 reactor. If the pump doesn’t work I can use the Hydor inline pump I have laying around.
Sorry for the poor quality, I put it together quickly
So do you think this could work?
