Building your own aquarium equipment will save you tons of money! With my plans you will be able to build;
All of this for a fraction of the price than if you bought them online or at your local fish store.
A wet dry filter, the best filter for any aquarium. Grow tons of nitrate eating macro algae in your own sump refugium. A protein skimmer necessary for every salt water aquarium. Make tons of your very own live rock.
Before I wrote these plans, I did loads of research, and found tons of information in books, on the internet, and from other hobbyist. I decided to put all that I'd learned into these easy to follow plans. If you are thinking of making any of these projects, all the information and instructions are right here in these easy to follow step by step plans. Anyone can build any of my DIY projects. Even if you have limited building experience, building one of my designs will be a snap following my direction laid out for you in these plans. All of my designs are being used by thousands upon thousands of not only reef aquariums owners but fresh water aquariums hobbyists as well.
You can custom build the filter to any size to fit your needs.
Make as much live rock as you want for a fraction of the price it would cost to buy "live rock" from your LFS.
Build a protein skimmer that pulls amazing amounts of skimmate from your aquarium that you won't believe your eyes.
