Does anyone know a good low flow filter for a 5g tank? I turned on the TopFin that came with the tank. It is way too strong & not adjustable. I didn't want to make matters worse so I turned it off.
I would get a "floating" thermometer, it actually attaches to the glass with a suction cup, more accurate than the strip. As for the filter, I have the same one, I cut up some pre-filter sponge & put into the filter intake arm, SLOWS the output considerably. Just don't stuff down in there too much otherwise it really stops the flow.
