| | Re: Making a hidden filter/sump for a nano, Stumped help?
I have a 5.5 gallon and I use a combination of an Aquaclear 70 (not plugged in) along with a Fluval 105 canister. The intake tube is in the tank, runs through the canister filter, then the outflow goes into the Aquaclear 70, which flows back into the tank.
In addition, I use a 50W heater which is kept in the Aquaclear. The result is the only equipment in the tank is an intake tube. And I get a crazy amount of filtration with relatively light water flow, and extra water volume from both the Aquaclear and canister filter.
