Still trying to decide between the Koralia 425 and the Tunze NanoStream 6015. About the same flow rate.

Ok, Ronald. Here's the pics of my tank with the new 425. Small, easy to place and the fish love it!



Close up...



Wide... (right in the center, you can hardly see it...)

The circulation it gives is great. Not too much and not too little...

Those are nice shots! I totally missed it dead center - that's one of the nice things about it. Beautiful tank!

I have a Marineland Maxi-Jet 1200 pump, love it to bits. But it'd be over kill in a 50g, was over kill in my 75g. Would be fine for my 110g, but the fish in there wouldn't be happy with me.
Pump really shreds up plants that go in there, though...

Ugh what a tough call right now. Either 2x 425 Koralia Nanos or 2x Tunze NanoStreams. Does anyone have pics of a Tunze in their tank?

Thanks, Guys! Don't know if it would be as nice had it not been for the great advice I've gotten here!

I split my initial shipment between Aquatic Scapes/Freshwateraquarium plants.com and Extraplant.us. Everything else I have gotten from Extraplant. Both places have good product and service. I just like the way Stephan has his stock shipped direct from Florida. The plants are inspected byt the FL Dept of Agriculture (I think the DA). And he's usually got a great deal of stock. I hope this isn't too much commercial for the rules...
