Filters can be tricky- pay attention to their output. There are a few nano canisters out there that sound AWESOME until you plug it in and your tank looks like a scale model of hurricane Andrew.


On the same note, if using a spray bar on said AWESOME nano canister, remember to top off the tank regularly lest you have your mother calling you on vacation to tell you that your new filter has turned into a sprinkler system for your desk (yes, with the lap top underneath...). Apparently even with the flow subdued, it can spray very far.


Pay more for the good heater- back to "small quantities of water are less forgiving."

As long as you can regulate the flow properly, use the biggest filter possible. The extra volume of water really can help, and large biofiltration capacity can keep a mistake from turning into a disaster. I know this because I like to feed generously--you can guess the rest.

keep up with water changes, and dose lightly, and a just photo period lightly.
pay the extra few dollars, for a heater and light bulb. uses the biggest filter possible it helps. ( i have a xp1 which says 250gph, then once filled with media that goes down to 150).

Hah! I just lost a tank to this! I'm wondering what's going to happen with the new wave of LED tanks down the line when those diodes finally give out...
