I think you are 100% when you said "The great thing about DIY is you start one way and end up going another." Because I feel the same way. But we all do it because of the unknown, right? That makes it all worthwhile. Thanks for reminding me again, I've really enjoyed the adventure so far...

The plan is to use a 4" pvc tube, the pond pump, 1/2 pvc that I already have and the filter media and get started. The great thing about DIY is you start one way and end up going another. I will be getting supplys tomorrow and hopefully get started this weekend.
I will need some help in selecting media. I was thinking (not in order) act carbon, bio media, something to fight ammonia, foam, filter pads and realy anything else i can fit into it. I would like to see if I could put my heater in there also. It would be less stuff hanging in the tank. I will post picts as I go
right now I have
2 100 micron 7' filter socks (for cut to size)
