About Diy Filter Projects

In this section you will find different ideas to make do-it-yourself aquarium filters. Our DIY aquarium projects have two goals in mind:

1. Reduce the cost of entering or participating in the aquarium hobby by providing unique ideas that will save money or make the hobby easier.

2. Encourage Aquarium Life readers to take a more hands-on approach to fish keeping. There is nothing like looking at your perfectly balanced aquarium and knowing that you built most of it yourself.
