Planned office nano
So while my partner and I have 2 nano tanks and a 55gal that we're setting up, I'm researching an all-in-one-ish nano kit to have at my desk at work. I'd like to stick with a glass tank, 5 gallon "max" (mostly for lower quantity changes), and footprint is virtually limitless for a 5 gallon tank with plenty of unused desk space.
I plan to have some java moss and frill as the majority of the plants, maybe a ghost shrimp or two and either a small school of tetras or a 3rd rescue-betta.
I'm currently settling the ecoexotic ecopico but I can't find anything on the stock filter outside of "I replaced it with this or that" and "the current was too strong for my betta."
So on the ecopico, how bad is the filter? Are there other glass kits that are at/less that price point that don't require any further replacement parts?
