nano powerhead

I want to employ the hamburg mattenfilter in my 2.5 with the use of a powerhead but I am unaware of any such powerheads. Does anyone know of a nano powerhead? I am looking for one with an output of around 25 gph.

I use the pump from the Tom Mini internal filter. If you take off the filter part and just use the pump it's dimensions are only 1.5" x 1.5". It comes with a detachable DC power supply, spraybar, suction cups and has a variable flow adjust. This little pump is perfect for water movement in pico tanks.

I think I bought mine at petsmart for $14

I would love to see your setup once you get the filter in.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

I've used the tom's mini on my 2.5 gal. The pump works great but the unit is not the best at filtering. I switched to a Red Sea Art Deco Nano. It is quite powerful for being so small. I actually started using two filer pads to suppress some of the flow. It still circulates the water very well.

Thanks! I might even take it to the next level! My mother is in the process of experimenting with DIY backgrounds for me. She is extremely artistic, a terrestrial gardener and an amazing DIY'er. I am trying to think of a way to have the corner bound HMF hidden with somekind of tree trunk built into the backround. I'll post pics once the project is in full motion.
