donk232 created the topic: my filter.

Ive been active recently with the new tank a death and injuries and a new fish so why not add to the post count with my diy wet/dry. The bottom hasn't changed it's just 60luffas in the top smaller Rubbermaid and filter "stuff" in the bottom one and the pump. Should have went with something clear but oh well I didn't change the base up.

This is it running with nothing attached. It's a cake carrier :laugh:

The mechanical filtration

Lid with PVC pipes for connecting it.

Everything on.

looks really good to me as well. What is underneath the foam?

Looks like you have a lot of space for media :)

Under the foam is the drip Tray and right under that are all the luffas in the Rubbermaid. I have PVC holding up the drip basket.
Funny u should ask. i just bought a Mag Drive 18. my 2 overflows handle 700gph each, so the pump might be a hair to strong ill have to see when i get it ina week or so. my current pump is 1300gph but starting to die.

Thats a pretty cool setup very nicely done. I imagine you could get a pretty good sized plastic tote if you wanted to.
