another question
 
The HOB that came with the nano tank seems to have a driping leak. Is this normal with a dry HOB, (meaning it will go away if I wait it out.) or is this something I need to look into in depth?

thanks,
dale

I don't remember seeing any leaks - and no, that's not normal. I would track the leak down and give it a dab of 100% pure silicone sealant to fix it up.

Will do. It has slowed down some but I will track it down anyhow. I lost about 1/4 inch of water in 3hrs.

That's not cool. Nor is it like a filter like that to lose so much so fast. You can either go the silicone route as Carl suggested or find a palm filter similar to the one on there (should be lest than $10 like here). I hope it works out quickly for you...that's a cool little setup you walked out of there with!

I found the source. It was overflowing the filter. I turned down the flow and had not noticable drop in water through the night.

Thanks for your help.

Cool! Glad you found it. I can't remember...can you adjust how much media is in that filter?

also happen to me, i forgot to clean the media from my HOB and then when i woke up the carpet on my room is wet, i thought its the tank and check all over it and i found out that my HOB is overflowing, i dry the carpet using my mom's hair dryer :p

There a rough adjustment for flow and yes you can adjust the amount of filter media. I had a find filter blocking the output so as to filter the "dust". It is gone now and the water lvl is fine.

Thanks for all the help
