    heres when i pulled it out of the shed.



    i was going to use iti, then i realized the major flaw with this tank. (aside from the size of course)
    no filtration.
    it used to have a small UGF, but i tossed thast as soon as i got it. and because of the size, its too small to run even a small box or sponge filter.
    so it was time to improvize

    i drilled it out and installed bulkhead fittings.
    then threw together a quick wet/dry to test the seal on the blkheads




    put on a 20gph fountain pump, and it seemed to be running.

    my initial idea was to build a 20g+ sump for this 1g tank. the sump was goping to sit behind one of my couches, but i couldnt find the right shaped container for my project so i ended up making a 5g bucket wet/dry filter

    after trading out the pump for a much bigger (in comparison) pump, and building my 5g wet/dry. i ran the plumbing and did another wet test



    (the bucket is tucked behind one of the couches. i pulled the counh out so you could see the plumbing. once the couch is pushed back, you cant see the filter or plumbing at all)
