Pool filter planted tank project

Recommended Posts

Hello all, Just a pic of my overgrown outdoor tank using a swimming pool filter powered by a 24w variable speed dc pump inside the tank.The filter is back washed every 2 weeks with the 200w pump that came with the filter using half of the tank water to flush out the crap(filter media is pool filter sand) The tank is 1200mm long 750mm high and 500mm front to back about 380 liters no lighting just ambient sunlight and about 1hr full sun in the late afternoon, i use a led light at night for viewing.... Substrate is a mix of Coir(coconut peat) horticultural charcoal and pool filter sand capped off with gravel and river sand.. post-13114-14711631917089_thumb.jpg
