View Full Version : Carbon filters: DIY or store bought

02/24/2017, 03:29 AM
Hey guys I have a marine land and top fin hang on the back filters on my 55 gallons reef tank, I was wondering do people just buy replacement filters or perhaps the carbon and create their own.

Love to hear your thoughts!

Hi Zik,

If you have the setup, replacement filters are the safest bet and look the cleanest, but the DIY stuff works pretty well. My tank is a lot smaller and a simple DIY charcoal bag in my sump does the job for me.
