give me a few days to do a write up on the one i am building and then i will post the link .....

various parts serve a different purpose and i am at work so a bit limited on the ability to respond in full just now...

IMHO/IME the more filtration the better no matter the set up....
I've found a few DIY filters on youtube that seem good. Parts include plastic bottle, filter media, filter wool, and air pump with hose.

great .. my #1 advice is to keep looking and see what others have done and then design something to suit your needs and or ability... a copy is good but a custom design is better in my eyes... that way you get what you are looking for....

I've watched probably 4 or 5 videos and have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to do.

Thanks for your help!

I just blacked out my tank and am a bit nervous. Haha, I don't know why.

hahaha! I've already peeked and it's only been blacked out for a few minutes. I suppose nothing bad can happen, right? So I shouldn't worry.
