I want to build my own nitrate filter, but before I do it I wanted to run it by you guys and see if there are any problems you can see with my idea. I want to take about 16 ft of airline tubing and stick one end in my tank. Now the tube will run down into a coil of airline tubing (which is where the other 13 or so feet of tubing is located). I will syphon the water down the tube and it will end up in the sump. The flow will be at 1 gph, contolled by an ajustable air flow valve. I am doing it this way because I dont want to but a canister filter dor something that might not work. Does anyone see any major problems with this design?
