k. i'm thinking about builing myself a wet dry filter..

am i correct to make the following?:

I'm planning on adding it to a 100gallon tank.

I have a spare 10 gallon tank. I was going to add 3 devidors to it. 1/4 of the way each.

i will drill holes in the diverder first, small ones, so water can pass.

One side would have have plastic tubing(hard) and then with some parts 'll make it curver over the side of the tank and lead about 2-3 inches deep. this would act as the siphon. In this compartment i'll add some fiber mediea to trapp all that dirt.

next compartment i'll add the bioballs

next compartment will have crushed coral and lave roicks(50x50 mix)

and the last compartment will have bags of carbon, and ammonia rocks. and a penguin powerhead pump(largest one i can get) that i'll adjust so it'll push the water back into the tank on the other side....


is that pretty much good? any suggestions? did i get the point of it right? would that work?...
