I recently picked up a tank that has several cracks in it, and I plan to reseal it using silicone. The sealing part is common sense...apply silicone, let it cure, test for leaks. However, I've never done this before, and I wanna get it right, so if you have any tips or instructions on resealing...
Start off w/ parts list and cost, and maybe a source of inspiration too.
Then use step-by-step instructions and pics to clarify confusing steps, and to show progress as well.
And then, finally, a shot of the finished project any maybe a vid too.
I load up my filter with some AC after every 100% tank cleaning, or when I add something new to the tank (river rocks, gravel, etc). The AC should clear up any unwanted substances in the water. Other than that, I don't use it.
I just broke my heater (second time now)...and I need to get a new one, though I really can't afford to shell out that much.
There's a store I know of that sells cheap Jebo heaters...has anyone ever heard anything about this brand?
Anyone have any cheap but reliable heaters to recommend...
Not bad at all.
I just happened to finish making my first DIY canister filter as well. I can sympathize with you about the trial and error involved in making the filter...testing for leaks, going out for parts, the disappointment and frustration- I've had a healthy handful of all of it. But...
I'm planning on building a DIY canister filter soon- just running some ideas right now. I'd like to know your opinion on what I can use as the canister itself. It has to be easily obtained and simple to work with, and airtight as well. The bigger the better.
