Crazyfishlady Posted January 1, 2015 Report Share Posted January 1, 2015 I am arguing with myself (yes, I do that a lot, lol) about my 2.6 gallon cube tank. The filter it came with is huge compared to the size of the tank. It's an internal filter with a spray bar. I modified it to make it shrimp and baby safe (I hope) and that makes it take up more room. I had ordered a small HOB filter http://www.amazon.com/AZOO-AZ13097-Mignon-Filter-60/dp/B005VEWCMO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420132497&sr=8-1&keywords=azoo+palm+filter during another internal debate I had I know people either like or dislike HOBs but I thought it would still provide good filtration and free up a lot of room in the tank. I never use carbon in my filters - I take it out if it comes with it and only use sponge and the little ceramics things. I keep the carbon on hand in case I have to dose meds with my bettas but that's about all I use the carbon stuff for. Thoughts? (edited to add - why the heck do the pics post sideways?? Is it something I'm doing?) Filter minus the spray bar attempt to show how much room it takes Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
