I've been maintaining a blog on my aquatic obsessions for some time, but recently completed the first batch of detailed build articles on my 240g tank and thought I'd share.

How it's made

That is a great write up of your build. I had a question about your fluidized bed filter. How is it working out for you? I have always wanted to build one of these because of their efficiency and the space saving (instead of a huge sump) and just wanted your opinion. Thanks!

It seems to work really well. It's my mechanical filter that I'm not very happy with. As I wrote about, I cheaped out on the pumps at first and paid the price in having to replace them, but overall it's worked well. I'll probably do fluidized bed filters on future large aquariums. I've never done a sump, partly because they're not good for CO2.

A quick question. On your Fluidized bed filter, near the bottom, it looks like you have a PVC flange there that could be bolted down. What are those called and where did you get them? Thanks again!
