I'm sure you will do well with a controller. Just remember it will require some fine tuning in the beginning to acheive the proper CO2 level and bubble rate. After that it is relatively...

I have had a 501 running for 4 yrs on a 5.5 gallon. There isn't enough flow for anything bigger in my opinion. The filter works well and does not leak. A nice canister filter for nano tanks.
