Finnex 4 Gallon?

1358 5
Yesterday my 2.5 gallon sprang a leak, and I moved all the RCS and the two Endler's to my Ebi. Everything survived, lucky my mom noticed the leak LOL. So I want to get a replacement, and the price of the Finnex 4, at just $27, may be a good thing to spend some Christmas money on. Do any of you guys have it? Good? Bad? Great? Horrible? And for substrate... I want something good looking but functional as well, but preferably able to fill this tank for under 10-15 bucks. Plants will be trimmings from my Ebi. Thanks. Shout out your opinions! And happy New Years!

And check out my Ebi Journal!

Is it the old one with the HOB or the new one with the canister filter?

It's a great nano tank. I'm happy with mine.
The HOB one. I don't really want the canister anyway because I don't need a powerful filtration system just for a shrimp nursery. And it takes up more space. Also doesn't come with a light, but that's alright because I am replacing my 2.5 gallon that sprung a leak yesterday night. So I already have a light. But heating wise... Will 10 Watts work? I don't want to bug my parents to buy me a more powerful one. Shrimp like cooler temps anyway, sooooo... We'll see.

I think I'll like it too. Which version do you have? HOB/Canister? Can you post some pics? What do you have in it? Thanks!
