Eshoppes nano prefilter would work well.
thanks tom, that was actually one of the ones i was considering. i'm really debating whether i want to do a sump or not, the extra volume of water would do wonders for water conditions and stability, plus water changes would be much simpler. I am just wondering whether it is really worth it, and what i return pump i should use.Eshoppes nano prefilter would work well.
as long as the overflow can handle more than the max ghp of the canister it should work. I don't know if that canister has a stopper in case of power outage, a couple of mine do, one does not for certain.I'm wondering if i wouldnt be able to use the 2217 as the return, i have a feeling it would be very difficult to dial in the flow with that though.
another question: is it possible to DIY a reliable overflow?
i do not believe it does.as long as the overflow can handle more than the max ghp of the canister it should work. I don't know if that canister has a stopper in case of power outage, a couple of mine do, one does not for certain.
Yep, especially since I'm keeping stock as sensitive as TB's, the extra volume of water will help keep things stable and clean!I have no idea about the sump but I plan to run one on a future tank as so many people seem to have success. Seeing how you only have 12 gallons but so much room, I would personally want to be able to stock it more and adding 20 extra gallons seems like a plus. I know my response isn't helpful but I would seriously consider a sump (and I am on my next tank) in general, especially for what is essentially a gigantic nano.
