I'm redoing my other tank, 18g, next year and making that my cull tank for the Neos. Moving the Red Cherries and Malawas into their own tanks.

Maybe a CPO tank. I'll redo it completely and see how it goes.

How's your shrimp, MABJ?

CPO is the orange crayfish no? Sorry I'm a little out of date on terms now.

My shrimp could be a lot better. I was too busy to take care of them as well as I should have, and they didn't breed.

Jaime and I deduced it that they mostly died from old age.

So it's time to start the colony up again.

No harm in that, I suppose. I'm ordering in some tiger shrimp, and I'll be also having Dark Bue Velvets in the same tank, I think.

The Almost-Ada tank.

I almost think I need another light on it. Not sure.

What is the best filtration for nano tanks? I don't like hob's as they are visually messy

I'm not tryin to be rude either :p.

I hate the new tapatalk.

I would personally recommend a zoomed 501 for it.

It's so short I had issues with shrimp climbing my Azoo palms

MABJ is in no way a rude guy, nor was he being rude in replying to your first question Simply stating that it has been mentioned many times in the thread.

But yeah, a zoo med would probably be best, HOB filters are nice, but my shrimp also try to climb up the outflow. I check the filter compartment every once in a while to make sure no shrimp are in there. A canister would be nice in this case for such a short tank.

Thanks mate pleasure to see you still around. Yeah I played with a few ways to keep them out. Some would still get in and get chopped up.

Curious but does anyone use a canister filter with lily pipes for this tank?

I like the zoomed on it.

I've since torn my tank down, though. It'll go up again when I have more room.

I'm not sure how lilly pipes would do, but I definitely like the cannister.

I'm using an Eheim 2211 with the provided intake/output. Works great for this tank.

sounds good to me. i have my AC20 on it and it's providing ok flow across the tank. just wanted something a bit more with more flow.. i may try the sunsun 602 canister filter. i've been reading decent reviews about it here.

i'll have my tank up with updated photos here shortly!

A 3 gallon tank would be about that the 602 sun sun is good for. Maybe a 5 gallon at the most. i bought one and hooked it up and was disgusted with how poor the flow was, its not sitting in a corner of my fish room and has been parted out for various other tanks. if you try it out on a 3 gallon post pics so we can see

haha will do. sorry it didn't work out for you. i figured it would be suitable for a nano.

anyone have any suggestions for lily pipe set for this tank? i'm hoping there's one out there where i don't have to cut a part of the rim off. but then again.. i could use a new dremel.

if i go the canister route, i may just end up doing an inline diffuser as well for my co2.

I cut part of my rim off. You may not have to. I don't know any decent lilly pipes to recommend.
