You're in! Welcome. I'll add your name to the list later.

Hey guys just ordered my Tank today! Was wondering if this internal filter is good enough for the aquarium, its a Tom Aquatic Dive Clean Mini internal filter. I want to use this one so I can keep the lid on my aquarium so my Lampeye killies dont jump out like they are notorious for doing.
Is it better then the Palm Azoo mini power filter?

You could use that or a Hagen mini internal, the flow on those things are crazy

Congrats! But no, it probably isn't better.

I personally see a huge difference between in and out filtration.

The best filter for this tank hands down would be a zoomed 501.

I'm going to use a Finnex 360 on mine, it is a bit larger than the zoomed. Hoping the flow turns out ok.

Nice! A little more expensive. I'll be interested in how it turns out

Just finished siliconing the bottom rim and top onto the bottom of my experimental 5B. Actually looks a lot better than I thought it would so far, so I'm optimistic. Don't really care too much if the inside is sloppy because substrate will cover it anyway...

Now to wait 3 days or so until moving it and deciding if I need to further silicone the inside... *looks at watch*...*drums fingers*...*whistles a tuneless whistle*...*looks at watch again*...

Okay, some very bad, but quick photos of my experiment.

I siliconed the rim back on the tank. Some squeezed out inside and I smoothed that with my finger.

I then ran a bead of silicone around the outside lip of the rim, and pushed the glass (top lid) on. The silicone squished out inside making the glass and lip a nice seal with no bubbles.

Here you can see the small "mounds" of silicone inside where the rim had air line slots and the silicone squished through them. I left those mounds to cure for added security.

It appears to be what's commonly referred to as a "Half Ten" - a 10gal tank cut in half. They're available from outlets like Glass Cages and occasionally at fish shops that specialize in reef tanks and coral.

I love half tens. Perfect for Pygmy Cories.

This is the filter i am using and it has been working well. I was using the spray bar since it fits perfectly width-wise but i just changed to the smaller attachment and I think it is working better, the flow is much more gentle.

It might be worth it to grab the zoomed 501. I have that on a 10G right now and its flow might be better suited to 5 gallons and below. I started using a Hagen Mini Elite but my shrimp were just being blown across the tank and it was hard to angle the output to not kick up the substrate. I didn't like the palm azoo either unless the flow was turned all the way down. It would blow around the substrate when i turned it up even a little bit.
