Nice DIY. I never thought about using a submersible pump. I use a tv/microwave stand for one of my 20 gallon's. I got it used at a yardsale.

Lucy you never thought of using submersible pump? What did you use for filter? And thanks for the comment I Am planing to use BAMBOO body for ohf next time, and another box filter for the right side of the tank made with bamboo too. XD

I use regular HOB's. I'm thinking the small submersible pump might do well as an aerator.

Interesting setup! I always thought the tank shouldn't hang off the sides of the stand, because it needed more even and consistent support, but I suppose you're making it work.

I think submersible pumps are more popular in Asia. My parents have them in their tanks.
