    You could find a filter just like this that is not as much of a cone, that would be ideal. They have them at alot of auto stores.

    Ok I am doing a cabinet grow and its 2'x2'x6' . What size filter would I have to get. I am thinking of two of the small goped ones bc I am using two pc fans for exhaust fans. Would that work.

    planning a grow myself at some point and am very interested in this , my question is would a decent computer fan be able to handle this ? and does a carbon filter need to be on both outtake and intake ?

    Sweet idea, this could have saved me a lot of pain and money had I found this thread earlier. I spent over $40 dollars and a whole day building a scrubber from the ground up a few years ago.

    Would any similar filter work?? I've seen that but it was shaped differently.

    That is awesome I'm looking into adding another filter into my setup but don't have the money to spend on a giant one let alone the space.

    Actually a faster more likely to be safe (health wise) way to no smell is the small portable electric scrubber, but if you really want to DIY without using fishtank carbon try using the wrap that is for filter systems and comes with velcro straps. Both can be had easily and fairly reasonably at scentless.bz The portable scrubber though means you dont have to do squat except plug it in. My idea for dealing with odor issues...
