donk232 created the topic: thinking about adding another DIY filter.

i have a 1" pvc pre cut hole in my tank (currently the return from the filter to the tank) but i want to make that lead to a sand filter probably . the big questions are: can i speed up the water flow with a air line pushing water up and out? do i need to do that with the hole being below water level? and if i do this i will NEED a siphon break how would i make one of those?

THANKS!

Are you trying to make something like a Lifegard Fluidized bed filter?
