Diy Internal Filter

So, I've been needing a better filter for my qt tank but I don't have the money for a nice filter, so I decided to make my own :)

Basically what I did was I took an old powerhead that I never used and attached a canister for media. The powerhead circulates 300 gph.

The canister (rubbermaid):


Then I drilled small holes at the bottom, going all around and one large hole at the top to fit the intake of the powerhead.



Then I used silicone to seal the intake to the lid of the container.



And that's pretty much it. Here's the finished product:


Just add media. It's not the most attractive filter, but it's good for a qt tank.
