I was thinking about making a diy mini canister filter.
You can take a rio 50 (size of a quarter) and submerge it into the tank. Then pipe the tubing out into a sealed bottle or container of some sort with in and out barbs. Fill the container with filter floss and you are done. I'm looking for a container that isn't so ugly looking.
i hear you figgy but I am also trying to see what will grow in the tank.
Gotcha--I do the same!
The filter Marc just posted looks like what you'd get if you followed Goldfishcrazy's homemade directions. As slick as it is, I still wouldn't bother with a filter on such a small tank--just too visually obtrusive to my eye...and you definitely don't need a filter to cycle a tank--if something poops or rots, chemistry happens!

can't take credit for any of the moss, in the front. I planted it like that. The weeping moss and juncus did grow a lot though. I am going to put pressurized co2 on this thing, haha. How crazy is that. I got an ada mini regulator. I will post pictures when I have it available.
