I made my own filter out of a 5 gallon bucket. Put an outlet near the bottom and cut a hole in the lid for the inlet. Place a pond pump in the water to pump it to the filter, water runs through the filter back into the take. I use floor scrubbing pads for the filter with a course one on top then a finer one in the middle and an activater charcoal pad on the bottom. I also run a dual outlet aquarium air pump for airation. A coil of copper tubing can be added to the line and placed in a freezer to keep the water cool.
If you used a chest freezer for the tank you would not need to copper coil.
I don't know what the cost in electric would be to run the chest freezer. If you put a coil in the freezer in your refrigerator, you would get double duty from it as in keeping your beer, pop, crawlers etc cold at the same time
We'll see you on the water
