Quiet Filter for Nano Tank (3 Gallon)
Planning to get a planted nano tank started with HC & hairgrass, but I am deciding on what filter to get. Tank is a rimless 3 galoon (12" x 8" x 8"), with flourite black.
What filter would you guys recommend for this tank? I am also planning to put it in my bedroom, so I want the filter as quiet as possible (preferably silent!)
I thought about the sponge filter, but then even the smallest air pump makes way to much noise in my room.
Internal filter (whisper i10, fluval) seems to take up too much space inside such a small tank.
Cannister filter: don't think anyone make cannister filter small enough for a 3 gallon tank.
So I guess I am gonna stick with the good old power HOB filter...but which brand or model would be a good choice for a 3g tank that is extremely quiet?
Btw...I have an aquaclear 30 running in my other tank, and I think the noise level is acceptable, so I am thinking about getting the aquaclear 20 (smallest they have) in the 3g. However, would that filter (100gph) still create too much water flow inside a 3g tank?
Is too much water flow bad for plants?
What do you guys normally use for the small <5 gallon tank?
