Default Zoo Med 10 really the best option?

Iíve been out of the hobby for years & I decided I wanted to build a high tech nano tank for my office.


I donít like the look of the hob filters and the in-water filters take up a lot of room in the tank. So Iím considering canisters.

I do NOT need to pick the cheapest filter.

I want something thatís:
- easy to work with
- I can use an inline co2 diffuser
- I can use glass lily pipes.

So far: The tank is 7.5G, pressurized CO2, Fluval nano 3.0 light.

You might not even need a filter, just water movement. Shrimps would work in a small tank or even nano fish won't have much bio waste.

Aquarium without any mechanical filtration often has low clear water. By the way, filter sponge helps a little bit with bio-filtration too. Because it's a nano aquarium, it's important to make it stable as possible.

I would think about small filter like Zoo Med Nano 10, I think it's a good choice.
