I'm still debating on doing one in my own yard.

One of the Bala Sharks is incredibly skittish and if you go anywhere near the tank at night it goes bonkers and kicks up a lot of sand. The sand in turn travels up the tube and goes into the impeller well. Over time, the sand cuts grooves into the impeller assembly and rod which causes a horrendous rattling noise. I thought I could put up with it, but caved and bought the 2 parts new for just over $20. It doesn't sound like much, but if you look you can find the filter for about 80 bucks so to think that a quarter of the price of that is in these 2 small parts is a little nauseating . Here's pics of the new parts next to the old worn parts.

Maybe not a good idea. The green sunfish killed everything in my freshwater tank, even much larger bass. After the green sunfish killed all the fish, my crawfish killed the green sunfish.
