its a bigger version of this. Just hook up a airtube and pump to it and bobs your uncle. It has a open cavity in the middle where you can place any type of filter media in if you choose. I keep mine empty.

I use this size in my 2 10g tanks with my males

Thank you! Do you happen to know what the difference would be between the T5 and T8 bulbs? Are the T8 more energy efficient?

T5 are more efficient and tend to put out a brighter light in a smaller bulb. 2 12 in T5 High output bulbs are HIGH light. T5 fixtures also tend to cost a whole lot more
