Creating a current in a 2.5g. Is there a way?

Im interested in adding a little current into my 2.5g. Though I have looked at many pumps and I just cant find one that has a small enough flow. Anyone have any other suggestions or is my filterless 2.5g just damned to be currentless?


I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.

Red Sea nano filter, you can take the filter pad out if you just want to add flow to you tank

I used to use a red sea nano on a 2.5 gallon. It worked great to keep the water moving, so much so that I had to turn the flow down to about 40%.

Aside from the Red Sea and Azoo HOB filters there are also miniature pumps available if that's more your style. I noticed you requested them.
