DIY Surface Extractor
I have a surface dirt/film problem already on my new
29G tank, and I do not wish to use the "Molly
Solution" (though it does work great in my 60G)
because I don't want black mollies in this tank. I
think most of the crap on the surface is dust from
the Flourite because I didn't rinse it. (I know,
hindsight blah blah)
So, I looked into getting a surface extractor. The
Eheim unit seemed like a good idea, but after reading
some reviews, I decided it wasn't worth the $$.
Furthmore, I read Ivo Busko's excellent DIY surface
extractor article on The Krib --
http://www.thekrib.com/Filters/Busko/ -- and decided
to build my own.
So, the question -- has anyone tried to build one
besides Ivo? If Ivo is reading this, are there any
design adjustments / improvements you would advise?
Any advice is appreciated.
