Some other low cost DIY projects? How about sponge prefilters, DIY nets, Tank dividers that don't collapse, Covers to keep fish in but let air out, DIY lights or if you are into wood work, stands and canopies are always a good item.
Unfortunately the DIY canister is appealing but often not practical. Guys often have a fair amount of time and money invested before they find what they want is not very much fun to maintain after they get it built. Water has a nasty way of finding a way to get out and onto the floor!
