I have not installed the motor yet, that is pending for Saturday, once It is complete I will post pictures of it complete and then pictures of how it will sit in the sump working, This is simple design... professional roller mat filters are more compact and surface area is very little, this roller is 10" side and water will be draining and going through 20 inches of paper.



I will share info on where to get this paper fleece roll and this perticular 1 is 40 micron and next 1 is going to be 20 micron or lower, i want my tank water to be crystal clear or at least that will be the goal..
