    2nd month of 2018.
    13 plus month of no water change.
    Everything still ok. No major issue.
    Will continue with no water change.
    Now water is clean by power filter before return to display tank.
    (Glenn Fong method, Power filter)
    I might make some changes here after seeing the rollermat filter.
    This should be 2nd DIY for 2018.
    Welcome your comments or share.

    This is the power filter.

    Just some filter wool wrap around an extended pipe with drilled holes of the return pump
    or additional water pumps you add into your display tank.
