    Very impressive SM. I recently posted about a DIY UAS using an Aquaclear 50 HOB but this might be a better option for me. A couple of questions if I may? What is needed to drive the ,leds and since the screen and bubbler (I assume) are siliconed in place, what if they needed replaced? I did not see any holes except on top. So, I am assuming the unit must be mounted higher to eliminate releasing bubbles into the display, correct?

    Thanks, glad you like it.

    LEDs use a simple LED driver, available at the same places that sell the LEDs.

    If the screen needed replacing, you would just cut the silicone out with a knife.

    If the bubbler needed replacing, you would just pull it off; it does not have too much glue. Then glue a new hose, cut it, and adjust the segments for even flow.

    It also has holes on the bottom. Can be mounted higher than the waterline, as in the Day 1 though 5 pics, or below the surface, as in the Day 6 through 9 pics. Below the surface makes less sound, and circulates more water through the cover; thus it will collect more floating particles as is shown in the pics. But of course it makes bubbles
