Markp2483 Posted May 7, 2022 Share Posted May 7, 2022 The inspiration for this is im really liking my AIO with intank media baskets. It way easier to maintain then my canister filter So started with an open box deal cpr refugium. and then 3d printed media baskets like a weir in a sump The idea is, water is pumped in chamber 1 with the heater spills over on to filter floss thru sponges, then to purigen packet (not shown), then through media and back to tank. I have that area under the over flow not sure what to use it for yet maybe just java moss and try and grow some freshwater amphipods Its all powered by a tiny 4.5w tunze but still has a decent flow rate 225gal per hr After testing with some fish food to visualize the flow I've run into issues 1) media baskets need a gasket or some way to prevent water bypassing the filter floss/ foam 2) The intake pipe directs water straight down. This is great for a refugium where your trying to slow the flow down but not for this application where im trying to get the majority of the waste into filter flow. So i need to add a 180 to the pipe or maybe just an airstone to keep waste from settling there Anyway fun project so far Will post updates as i work out the kinks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
