DIY Cerges Tri Dome

Finishing up a small project. Originally wanted an inline heater but there are limited options for a 3/4" inline that I would be happy with, so I made this combo unit. Filter housing is 20" tall to house the Eheim 300w heater, CO2 injector, temperature controller. The unit costs more than it should as I don't have access to decent raw materials. Center tube is a Python 24" suction tube cut to length, housing is off Amazon- clear plastic version cost a little extra, epoxy is automotive bumper plastic repair- tough strong and expensive, temp controller is an Inkbird unit, sealed bulkhead is a tough guy to source. Feeding this guy is Hydor 600.

Hi- sorry for the late response, got ripped off with the first aquarium order and finally took delivery one week ago. So it works as expected, heater is on a Inkbird controller that allows a bit of programming room for cooler night time temps. There is probably a better way to apply CO2- but this declutters.
