An all in one aquarium filter is possible if we keep it simple.
Building a DIY aquarium filter is one of my favorite how to projects to do.

The king of DIY
I liked it better when Joey was genuinely trying to teach cool fish keeping stuff. Now he just trying to be Rico Suave. Or Papi Chulo. Lol
I try it but why my pothos plant going to die its turning brown the leaves
It's a great idea. Thanks!
Hey is the air pump loud?
will this work with saltwater?
still the king .. brilliant !!
2:44 pretty sure lights go off when the power desides to stop
can i not put the plant in?
Hi, Could you please say in one sentence:
How effective is Pothos in reduction of Nitrates?
B) why there are so many other people in youtube saying Pothos is actually bad for the tanks Nitrate?
Joey can I use lava rock in this filter?
That’s creative genius PLUS decoratively speaking it looks great.
Hi Joey. Great info. Can I make an anoxic filter using my HOB filter? I would put the media in mesh bags and use a prefilter at the intake. Thanks for any guidance you can give me.
Nice ,but I know the $15 doesn’t include the eheim substrat pro lol. It’s a great bio media. All my filters are packed with substrat pro
can this support 10 gallon tank
So if I have two bottles of 2l I will over filte r 100 gallon tank
So interesting! Where can I get pathos plants?
What kind of air pump is being used?
i have a 10 gallon tank. if i add this DIY Filter then will it be enough to take care of the tank ( water movement/cycling in tank/water flow),. fishes are not yet added and i only plan to go for nano fishes. also i only have a air pump and a diffuser with a diy sponge filter made by watching this video. nothing else. currently the tank is being cycled and its 4th week now.
hi sir please make video how to make a planning soil at home
Do we need to use different strength pumps for different flow rates? What is good for a 10 g?
Whats that media youre using?
Can I use this instead of the traditional filter in my tank?
I am looking for a nice turtle tank i need a wave maker or waterpump
can charcoal work in filter to reduse nitrate and ammonia
wow you guys get it cheep over there .. minimum i have ever seen for an air pump alone is $15 here in Australia
Does this type of filter replace canister filters?
so after this filter is installed you don't need to change water? is that so?
OMG! 500 ml bottle For 30 gal!!!!!! AMAZING!
I'm getting one! Thank you!
I absolutely must say thank you for this. I'm planning on making a paludairium that is at least semi self sustained, to keep matnince low. This filter greatly helps for sevral reasons.
1.) cost effective
2.) low maintenance in terms of cleaning, replacement etc…
3.) removes nitrates
4.) saves space
5.) grows plants
can we use straw for bio media
Gonna make this. Thank you so much! Love your vids! Much love from the Philippines ❤
Hey! Pothos is REALLY forgiving! They can tolerate full sunlight as well as none at all. Also, I'm spreading the word that the leaves can be pinched off and planted directly into your substrate. The plant quickly grows roots and thrives in your tank as well as keeping your Nitrites and Nitrates barely detectable. These can also be found at any Lowes or Home Depot. Happy Fish! 🙂
what kind of media is that?
can i make this bigger..and how to i get more FLOW in my take all the waste just sits on the floor of the tank
Where do you get those sponge
What kind a drillbit is that
u think I can use the material with a set filter of the Tetra AquaArt Explorer Line 30liter tank?
it's an internal waterfall filter.
the usual media is covered in a bag of sponge. this one is slit into the filter vertically. so the water is pumped in the section behind it and flows through the media to the overflow.
but I'd like more biological media in this filter… I thought to use ur built . the work of water flow would be established by the internal pump.
I have regrets because I don't know if the the media would get the flow stuck.
what do you think?
My lion head never swim at the bottom of the tank they swim near surface of water with its mouth open
Will this filter work with turtles?
are water changes still needed?
You can also fully submerge pothos.
Will it still aerate the water even though its slightly above the water?
What tank sizes would this be good for?
My mom has had this plant for years! Never thought it'd be of any use to me. Just set it up in my tank- Thank you~
Joey is there any substitute that can be used instead of Leca here
great video. What size of pump & size of bottle would be required for a 70 gallon tank ??
Whats the name of that plant, how do you write it ?
Thanks! Need to build something that won't stress my son's Betta fish and this looks perfect!
Hey Joey, I just made one of these yesterday and put it in my cichlid tank! As a precaution I added a check valve, as I always do with anything I run off of an air pump. The air pump I used was a double outlet, so I just cut a couple of pieces of airline, connected them to a T piece to run a single line to my bottle and I also added an air line control valve to control the air output. Its working like a charm and I plan on making another for my community friendly tank! Thanks for the ideas and keep em coming!!
