Nice Tiger! Shawn

I've got sheets of acrylic/lucite from office desk setups which I may now put to use. The DIY list grows faster than my fish....TIM

I stumbled across his videos today. (what influenced me to look for DIY threads here)
I will definitely be doing some overflows, wet/dry, and sumps. I cannot promise how long this will take me, but I will subscribe to this thread, and post updates.

I am quite mechanically inclined, but any suggestions, and pointers would be appreciated. Thanks. :)

Shoot I am not mechanical inclined at all and I put together a overflow and sump with help from members here so you should have no problems doing it with a little help

The first ones I am going to do will be for the cycled community tank, it's a 55.
My current filter hanging on the back does 330gph. I would like to increase that obviously.
The only real question I have at this point is specifically which pump should I use?

Woot for diy fish keepers! (also a member there.)

He has some pretty cool vids there on diy stuff. Some I've done, some I'm planning on doing. (DIY canister filter will be the next one I do)
