  1. HOB Algae Scrubber idea

    I'm considering making an acrylic algae scrubber that'll work as a HOB, and trying to make it look fairly professional (kinda hoping I could sell 'em if the prototype performs well, tbh). I plan to use mostly opaque black acrylic, with a clear acrylic back, with LED grow lights and a reflector on said back, then a plastic mesh for the algae to grow on. I'm undecided if I should try to integrate a normal HOB filter's motor and impeller and tubing into the filter, or use a powerhead with tube attachment to attach it to the HOB scrubber. I've never worked with acrylic before, but the process of bonding joints looks easy enough. Never used a powerhead either, so does anyone have any suggestions or warnings about problems I might face?
  2. Tank upgrade..

    Hello.. After some try and error & "some deals" I decided to upgrade my 20G to a 125G.. I know is a huge gap.. I wasn't really planning to do this and I don't even know if I'm gonna be able to keep up with it but Im only hoping for the best.. I'm having right now two little residents (survivors of Petsmart) who already passed the QT succesfully and another 5 goldies (from a better source) in QT tanks.. I wanted to show mainly the sump set up.. I'm a newbie and I only arranged the media to my little knowledge but if one of you experts tells me otherwise I'll be happy to rearrange.. I have first two layers of pink filter pad at the drip tray for mechanical Then, blue bioballs right under with an extra line of oxigen for gas exchange followed by some black small bioballs with sponge inside which are half way submerged Then some ceramic rings & substrat pro spheres.. Last, I added some foam block before returning to the tank for extra mechanical I also decided to make a DIY algae scrubber to keep the nitrates (hopefully) under control & eventually being able to overstock.. On the overflow box I decided to "wrap" the screen insert with some blue pad but if you guys think I'm slowing down the flow by doing that I'll remove it... I'm waiting on a deal I'm cooking for an FX5 or FX6 so right now I only have that small sump (Eshopps wd-75cs) & a Fluval 306 which I think it is (kinda) sufficient for two small residents.. Any comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.. Thanks!!
