Do it yourself aquarium equipment

So you want to make your own protein skimmer, sump refugium, wet dry filter or live rock.

With my plans you will be able to build your own protein skimmer which produces massive amounts of skimmate, you won't believe your eyes.

A sump refugium filter to grow and protect your own macro algae garden. Macro algae helps eliminate high nitrate and phosphate levels in your aquarium.

A wet dry filer, hands down the best filter for large aquariums. you will be able to build any size wet dry filer for what ever size tank you have.

I have spent a small fortune on live rock. That is, until I started making my own. Using my recipe you will be able to make hundreds of pounds of the most beautiful porous rock.

All of this for a fraction of the price than if you bought them online or at your local fish store (lfs).
