I want to start off by crediting Jay Smith, Ted Judy and Dale R. Grover. They are the ones to thank for inventing and contributing to this design. I am in no way trying to steal their design or knowledge. I am also not making any kind of profit by writing this article. I built the tumbler with some of my own design and it works great. I decided to share it with all of you in case anyone wants a cheap, homemade egg tumbler.
I built this tumbler for 15 dollars. The parts you will need are as follows:
- A Hydro-Sponge I filter for 10 gallon tanks made by Aquarium Technology Incorporated-NO. HS910
- A pack of LEE's Carbon Cartridges for Fish Bowl or Fritz Bowl Filters-Cat.NO. 13028
- A 3-inch long piece of 3/8-inch inside diameter clear, plastic tubing
- A piece of 3/16-inch thinwall inside diameter clear, plastic tubing cut the length you desire for your airline to plug into.
