Thumbs down Finnex Nano purchase-----help!!!!

I was wondering what system would make a better nano tank. The Finnex 8 or 4? The 8 and the 4 are both considered nanos, but what would you get?

The 8 could hold more fish, but give a bigger look...............


The 4 could hold less fish and plants but give it a more petite and cool look..........


Also, what plants/fish should I get for the 4 or the 8?


All recommendations welcome!!!!

question is kinda subjective...

But for me personally, I wouldn't really consider an 8g a nano since it is kinda big and you probably need a "dedicated" place to put the tank. Unlike the smaller 3 gallonish tank you can probably easily put in on your desk or book shelf..etc

Yeah, I thought the same, but if you do get a 8 , you can put in larger and nicer plants.

Well, do you want a small tank, or a smaller one? One will give you more room to work with, and the other will make things look a lot more "tight," which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

The 4 gallon will probably look "finished" a lot sooner than the 8 gallon would. But it will be smaller and not as noticeable as the 8 gallon.

Maybe you could just flip a coin?

(If it were me, I would just get one of each... can't have too many tanks, right?)

Ask around at different LFS's to see if they have any used small tanks they'd be willing to part with for a decent price. Also, check on Craigslist.

Thanks for all your help peeps, I want both, but I dont have the money to buy them or keep them running, so I might end up buying the 4 gallon. But still IDK

LOL. What do you think I should get ? If I have an 8 gallon, I have more room, and if I have a 4 gallon, it will look petite and nano like it is suppose to

I think I should get a 4 gallon, but I really like the space an 8 gallon gives me to aquascape.
