Cool DIY hang on Breeder/refugium

Now it may seem weird it did when I wanted one but found out it would work with a filter if I wanted but I want to try and make it myself, if anyone else is interested in having one instead of a in the tank breeder box, try aquaclear hob filters, preferably the medium sized, all you have to do is take off the top and take out what you dont need, I plan on using mine for breeding and holding hurt fish and also using the media area for peat to soften my water, but just started building a 18"x5"x5" acrylic box with a small area for a water pump and filter media, it will fit perfectly behind my rimless 10g, just need to make a nice waterfall like outflow, kind of like the aquaclear outflows, trying to figure it out will post pictures when i get my hands on a camera, any thoughts please express them.

Sounds to me like you made one of these: http://theshrimplab.com/store/?p=192

Am I correct? I thought of doing the same thing I was just worried about fry getting sucked into the turbine.

Seems like it would be a lot more expensive than buying one... Unless of course you already had an aquaclear filter laying around

I have several filter parts total cost so far around $32 mostly for high clarity acrylic plates and rods+filter pump, using a solder gun I believe is what it's called not liking it much but is not an eyesore, also using micro filter sponge to keep fry in I might. Finish it but leaning toasted the aquaclear hop for my breeding needs, very simple to set up if anyone wants to I could write what I am doing
