All hail the King!!!!!
How do you feel about using lava rock instead of plastic for the bio media? I can get a bag of that stuff pretty cheap at the hardware store. I know it needs to be rinsed really well.
How would you size a sump for your tanks
Hi, I realise this has been a few years but i wanted to know if you would recommend using lava rock in this type of filter?
Thank you so much
I am your 1k like
I found pot scrubbers made of polypropylene, polyester and nylon.
Does it matter what kind I use, are they all aquarium safe?
Are they equally good at sustaining the bacteria?
Hey joey, thanks so much for posting this great video. I took your idea an modified it to filter 200+gallons of water I am installing the plumbing on Friday. I can't wait until I get my 300 gallon tank finished for my common snapping turtle. Been watching a lot of your videos for ideas. You might see some I used in my tank setup! ;D thanks for your videos! But so far the turtle is loving his new winter home, waiting for his out door pond to be finished.
Will this work with lava rock
Is this an application ok for saltwater?
best tutorial I have seen!! it's all about the basics.thank you
you should do a video on how to build an acrylic HOB wet / dry filter. Something with a drip tray, chemical section and space for compact protein skimmer and heater…
You know like those sold commercially at crazy prices.
Joey i need to know, how do you get water to the sump from the tank? do you use a pump inside the tank
What kind of pumps do you need to get the water back up to the aquarium?
Is this alright for a reef tank? Thinking of cheap sump
Could i do a 55g rubbermaid tub for a sump on a 125 gallon tank? Thanks!
How to keep proper inflow and out flow from sump . I am concerned if water flow rate is not equal sump system will fail
Can i use this in a 10 gallon aquarium?
What kinda of idea would you have for a 55 gallon aquarium used as a sump for a 125 gallon aquarium as far as setting up the 55 with chambers as well as this method you have in this video
Will it work salt water?
Hey Joey!! Great videos! How about adding ceramic media to the area where the water pools in the sump after it comes from the dry part? This would make it a wet/dry system complete? Thanks again Joey.
Hello, is a Medium AquaFuge2 (refugium) good for an aquarium health that hang on the back, I'm so afraid that its going to harm the tank. Im going to use it to put all the assories like heater, uv, and filter hoses, thing like that.
QUESTION! I have a 75 gallon tank I plan to move my 2 juvenile turtles into. Out of ALL the DIY filtration methods you show on your channel (I've been watching for 3 hours now lol) which do you think is best for my situation? Cost isn't a huge factor but I'd like to keep it as low as possible. Hope to hear back! Thanks so much 🙂
What is interesting is… I built a trickle filter bac in 1990 and I used pot-scrubbies back then. How times have remained the same.
Hey joey bio balls whats your opion should i leave em in sump or take em out ….or what can i put there instead
Hi Joey. I'm very interested in pursuing this particular type of hobby but money constraints were preventing me from continuing…until I saw your video; there's hope for me after all! My question is are any other modifications/alterations needed for turtles! Regardless, your tutorial is excellent so subscribe I will…thanks.
Could this be used on saltwater as well?
i built a sump recently. My old 10 gallon, plus a 2.5 gallon inside of it became my skimmer chamber with chaeto and filter floss. XD tanks laying around plus asking the community for spare 2.5 made things easy. so far its been running for a few weeks. no issues. Constant water level on the skimmer, and silent running too.
whats the tool you used to cut the bucket? im surprised on how fast you cut it.
