Well I put it on the powerhead today and my hopes aren't too high. Seems that it's not very efficient at actually pulling water through the filter.

I might just invest in a sponge filter instead...

20h Shrimp/Plant nursery w/ diy internal filter

I'm setting this up in my bedroom so it has a few requirements from the wife... It has to be silent, unobtrusive, and low-cost.

Hair? Fuzz? Help?

I've had this algae problem for a while now. It shows up the worst on my driftwood (manzanita and mopani) but it shows up a little on my plants as well, especially when I still had java moss in the...

I have a local source for colorquartz, pretty sure I can get another bag of black from them. It's probably what I'll do.

Interesting.

I think the big factor for me right now (that I don't really WANT to consider but I HAVE to consider) is that I can get another bag of colorquartz for 20 bucks. I know I love the...

I had no idea what that baffle was for to be honest. I just took a plan for a fuge and modified it ;)
