Seeking Reviews For Red Sea Nano-filters


toothless

Have a gander at this: Nano-Filter

Here's a better picture of it:

I saw one of these units on display and set up on a betta bowl at my lfs. The betta looked very happy and not a spot of finrot on him anywhere so I imagine the parameters were held in check very well. This little thing seemed to keep the water absolutely clean without creating much current.

Oh yeah, did i mention the fact that this HOB filter is no more than than 3x3x2 inches max!!!! Seriously, this has to be the smallest HOB filter I have ever seen! By my accounts, This thing seems to be perfect for a 1 gallon set-up and looks to be as easy to clean as an Aquaclear.

So, do any of you have any experience with these units? huh.gif

Thanks! biggrin.gif

Hi,

I have a sort of "Tank Gallery" and this little tank set-up is one of my favorites! I bought the whole RedSea kit: tank, filter, and matching light [in dazzling PURPLE, I might add!] and put it together with eco-complete substrate and some small live plants for my female betta Sleet.

I feed her live food and change a cup of the water every other day. The light fixture is so good the plants are actually thriving and the water is pristine with the little filter. It's in a tiny bathroom so I rely on ambient heat. I've kept her in community tanks, bowls of varying design, and now this 1gal rig. She is by far happiest and healthiest here.

Hope that helps?

Thank you very much! :D

I knew just from looking at this kit that it is indeed a PERFECT home for a single male betta. And your input on the lighting makes me all the more pleased........

Now, I need to start looking for a good combtail to keep. I know just where he is going to be kept! ;)

Hi Toothless,

I'm new and not allowed to post a pic of the set up, but I did submit it for the "Betta of the Month" contest....!

I have the tank in red. I love it to death, and so does peanut. He zips into action whenever I turn the light on. My only problem with it, is in such a small tank the filter was knocking him around and tried to eat his fins once or twice. I put the filter in my small frog tank (two african dwarfs) and it works like a charm.

I have had a look at those kind of small filters for my 5 gl future betta tank, and found one at a local aquarium store. The lady there is very knowledgable about her fish, and the filter runs a tiny saltwater setup with a mini puffer and a few other things in it just fine.

Those nano tanks in general are quite the cutest - if setup without goldies in it, that is! :lol

I had one of those, they are good tanks but I did find out that my Betta wasn't that happy being in there , he got quite depressed living in there compared of being in my 36 gal tank, but if your looking for a small Betta tank I think over all it is a good thing :D
