Poret Corner Filters

When I heard my friend Stephan was moving out of the area, I knew the clock was running for me to get all my tanks converted over to HMF filtration.  Normally with largers tanks I just use the typical HMF where the sheet of foam goes from front to back / top to bottom on one end of the tank, but with my new 40 breeders I though I’d make corner filters.

Using HMF corner filters saves on the amount of foam needed and gives you a cleaner look in your tank.  If you leave enough room behind your corner filter you can hide things like heaters, bulk heads and pumps.  It’s also nice to syphon your water out behind the foam when doing water changes on tanks with fry.

Roll up your sleves and I’ll show you how I constructed my DIY corner filters in a future post!

Petco $1 gallon sale

What a great deal offered by Petco!  Every year Petco has their $1 per Gallon sale and this year I picked up four 40 gallon breeder tanks.  That a full load for an Isuzu Rodeo!

I purchased these through the Petco located in Troy Ohio.  They were not in stock so the store manager ordered them and even though they didn’t come in until after the sale was over, I got the $1 per gallon sale price.  Thank you Jesse!

I’m going to make some Poret HMF corner filters for these tanks so stay tuned.
