DIY Pico Canister for 1L tank

Things I need
- 0,55L canister
- clear hose
- pneumatic fitting (for hose nipple)

- "L" knee
- adhesive glue (I'm using Araldite)
- filter media

Make a hole at bottom and top canister, so hose nipple can fit in it. Then glue it.












Test drive:


Flow adjuster on powerhead set at the lowest flow,
