Acrylic Filtration Components

Midwest Custom Aquarium builds a lot of custom filtration components and can manufacture any of them in acrylic such as sumps, wet/dry filters, protein skimmers, refugiums, etc. We have our own basic as well as advanced designs but would prefer to build to your specs. Feel free to send us a drawing for review/quote.

Trickle filters are built with a drawer which holds a prefilter pad and slides out for easy change of the pad. Very user friendly and efficient. Most sumps and trickle filters are built custom to fit your space in order to maximize the holding capacity.

Some examples are pictured below with a very brief description.
