Filter Advice

Any recommendations on HOB or corner filters for a 12G long? We don't have a lot of room for the larger filters, so the more space saving we can get, the better.

We are thinking of setting up a low-tech, low-current hillstream setup. We're aiming for something to make the hillstream loaches happy, but not blow the CPO away.

When the tank fully cycles itself, we don't do water changes; we just top off the water. A good amount of biomedia storage in the filter will be helpful!

Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Fauna:
- 1 CPO
- 2 Sewellia lineolata or Gastromyzon sp.

swoof Looks like Marine Depot doesn't carry Mr. Aqua anymore. They have a different 12L/22L from AquaMaxx Aquariums.

The rocks and driftwood are from a nearby river. I soaked them in a bucket for a few weeks, checked water chemistry before and after and they seem to be safe.


Yesterday I planted about 100 HC seeds for the carpet. they are already starting to sprout. The carpet is the only thing I plan on doing from seed, since I couldn't justify the expense of root plugs.

TaylorTurner Hello, I'm new to the forum! After a 13 year break from fish keeping, I started a 12 gallon long project 2 weeks ago that I am really excited about.

Here is a link to my journal, if you'd like to check it out.

It's not the suppliers, but rather the pricing. I can actually get a custom starphire tank 20 gallon long for the same price. Funny enough, to have it shipped to WA and picked up by me is probably easier than to get to any of the Canadian suppliers.

I'm so lusting after a 12 gallon long, but the only place I've found it is on marine depot where it is 80+ USD, which translates into $120 isn CAD, without factoring in shipping. Wish there was somewhere closer to me that sold these tanks.
