You know...I was starting to get bummed that people hadn't commented for a few days...thanks guys :) I really appreciate any and all comments, questions, etc. Gives me a drive to do more. Anyways I just built a mini bio reactor for the 10 gallon. I got the idea off of a few sparse youtube videos I found showing something like it. Im going to upload the video to youtube to show it off and post video updates as the bio media matures :) I will post pics here if anybody wants to see it but not listen to me yack lol. I also WANT to write a guide on how to make one explaining its benefits and how it works...I just need to know if I could possibly get it stickied when its done. No point in writing a guide if nobody can see it.

those k1 filters are supposed to be EXTREMELY effective, albeit noisy. i've never considered making one myself, i'd rather buy a commercial filter which i know will work (im hopeless at diy)

The only noise I can see it making is the noise that comes from the air pump itself, and the tiniest sounds that come from the little bubbles. To me its quite peaceful, but I suppose that to some it can be noisy. I personally love DIY, and trust me....im not THAT good with it. I simply like to learn and say...hey..I made that lol.

UPDATE: The two overflows I ordered came in yesterday. Here are some pictures of them. They are made VERY well....just by looking at them I feel its money well spent on a quality product :)









Here is the bulkhead that was included. I like that it comes with a sponge and a adjustable silencer rod.

:D well im really happy that people are finding interest in my project. I will be uploading more pictures today of the tools I used to silicone, and clean up the 20 GAL sump :) Im eager to see the finished product as well :))) But its going to be months before this thing is stocked with little girls lol. I want to do it right the first time, so I can sit back and not worry about it lol. Also if you havent seen from the youtube videos my room is going to undergo a renovation here soon, so until thats finished im about to hit a roadblock as far as what I can do. If you go to my youtube channel I will be updating on some other projects of mine if you are interested. Ive found new fun in uploading youtube videos lol

UPDATE: Well....its not directly on the sorority, but it is related by all means. This is day three of the home made bio reactor for the 10 gallon. I am uploading daily videos to show its progress. This same stuff (the K1) is what I am going to use in my sump as my main bio filter :) Just thought you guys and gals might like to see its progress on a smaller scale for now :)
