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!
