circulation in nanos?

I'm looking to increase circulation in a 3 and a 10 gallon tank. I would appreciate advice for a mini powerhead or mag pump that will give me good water movement without making the inside of my tank look like a maelstrom. Thanks.

You can pick up a mini elite filter for your 10 gallon. It wont take up to much room and you can make a Co2 reactor with the nozzle that comes with it. Is your 3 gallon a eclipse?

I just picked up one of these and I like it its samll and you can place it almost anywhere in the tank. The nano should work out. About 240g flow.

Mini Eite should do the trick. Not too much flow for the little tank. I think the Koralia would be a bit too much for the 3 gallon but may be ok for the ten gallon. Thanks.
