Well fill let me introduce myself, I'm Diego and I'm from Mexico, I found this forum couple of days ago and I gotta say is the best I've seen.
I've been fascinated with nano tanks since I saw the first one and I decided its time to get one, I currently have a 10 gallon unplanted divided for 4 bettas, it was nice but im really looking to get a "iwagumi" look on this new tank. So the thing is I wanted something small for my desk, I looked at ADA and well, they are kinda expensive I don't doubt the quality but I just cant afford one right now.

So I found that Amazon has the best deals so far but the thing is one deal is $48 and has a regular filter, and the other one is $69 but it has a canister filter, any ideas what is a better deal? I really want a tank to be as successful as the one that Outlawboss has but I'm not sure about which deal to take. Is that canister filter even good at all? If not i'll just take the cheap deal and upgrade it.

Thanks in advance.
Diego

Welcome to the forums Diego! Another nano scaper has crossed over.

In regards to a canister filter, I would say that whenever you have a choice, go with the canister filter. They are (generally) better filters over their life than a HOB will be.

Although, here I am talking about canister filters and what have I had on my own finnex 4g for a year and a half? The stock HOB it came with! Hah!

You can't go wrong with one of those Finnex kits though. Also, when the money is available, the ADA tanks are quite nice.

Well I just placed my order! I'm extremely happy, the best deal I got is off their webpage, it's a little complicated I didn't even know you could but it directly off of them, the shipping from ebay & amazon was $18.51 and it is only $5.00 from their website. Thanks once again Outlaw! And good night.

I joined and started a 10 gallon planted tank which then became a 29 planted and has now spawned to little nanos everywhere! All because I came across this site researching other methods to "cycle" an aquarium. Once I saw the pictures I was hooked. My wife has been miserable since and my love for planted aquariums has deepened even more. Good luck!
