Drilled fluval edge build thread


Just drilled my rimless edge today, I ordered it online a while back, top came in cracked so i went topless. I just drilled it for a couple 3/4 bulkheads, and am going to do a canister of some sort, and an inline heater. Lighting will be DIY LED.

I just went for a typical putty dam, and drilled it with a ebay diamond hole saw. I tilted the drill just to get it started, and straightened it out and let the weight do the work. Any suggestions as to cheap canister setups would be appreciated.










First post BTW...

This would make a nice mini reef!
But for canisters people have been real happy with the cheap sun sun brand on ebay

Already got a stock one as a nano-reef, led light as well, but quick'n dirty.





Any sources of cheap inline heaters? they seem to all run from 40 to 50 bucks, and they're all 150w plus.

Hydor is about the only thing on the US market.

There are a couple DIY threads (I think Overstocked did one of them?) here on the forum about creating your own in-line heater rig, though.
