Got a 55 gal. drum at work the other day, just need to get a pump and filter for it, might try and make something out of a 5 gal. bucket for the filter.
Got a few pieces of 2" gas pipe at work that they were throwing away to use for rod holders, they threw a whole trailer load of the stuff in the dumpster.

Fringe benefits, and wifey approved to boot, you living large. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/laugh.gif

What's your thoughts on the filter and pump system?

maybe chop a 5 gal. bucket in half and hang it down through the top somehow.
put a couple inches of that black charcoal stuff in the bottom of the bucket and throw a piece of filter material over it, and punch the bucket full of holes around the bottom, then have a submersible pump shoot it down through the top, a couple of holes for overflow protection in case it gets clogged up.
Maybe a bubbler too.

Last ones a video, I drilled a whole in the flow control valve and stuck an air hose in it, it pulls the air through all by itself.

Yeah, it's from Home Depot. Not gonna show you the hole I drilled, just don't feel like pulling it all up. I don't believe it matters where you drill the hole or how long the tube is, it will still pull the air through. I just drilled it straight in and pushed it through til it was just sticking into the outet.
