Step 2: Size the bucket to your aquarium by placing it on top of your tank where you intend to locate.
Try to estimate the rough size of the “wedge” you will cut, be sure to leave enough room for things like your pump and your heater.
Then use the utility knife to cut the bucket in half.

You now have your wedge.
Step 3: After you cut the bucket in half, you will now need to cut the lip of the bucket off.
This can be done using your utility knife but will tak some time and effort.
But it will ensure you have a nice smooth surface.
Note: If your tank is higher than the height of your bucket. You can use the other half of the bucket to extend the half you are working with.
Simply use the silicon to join the two pieces together.
Step 4: Drill as many 6mm holes in to the surface of the wedge as possible.
This will provide maximum flow for your filter through the wedge.
Step 5: Now it’s time to colour your wedge.
First sand it down then spray it with
Krylon Fusion in any colour you want.
Be sure to let it dry for at least 7 days.
