I currently have the Aqueon Mini Bow 2.5 model (3 of them actually) and I really hate the filter. Many people on here have recommended the Azoo Palm and i have looked into it and really like it. I also like the price. I'm in college with a parttime job so don't have a lot of excess money to spend and since I need/want to replace all 3 filters from my 2.5 tanks I need a filter that is reliable but also inexpensive.
I just have a few questions about it. I know that it will be fine for the 2.5 gallon tanks I already have but I am looking to upgrade all of my tanks to at 5 or 5.5 gallon tanks. I live in a very small 1 room apartment so the only spaces I have to fit tanks are small tables scattered around my apartment so buying a larger tank and dividing it doesn't exactly work for me (if you live in nyc you know exactly what I mean). Would the Azoo Palm filter work in a 5 gallon tank as well as the 2.5 gallon? Online it says it will work on any tank up to 5 gallons but we all know that sometimes those facts aren't true.
If you Azoo Palm won't work in the 5 gallon tank, then does anyone have any other recommendations for me? Again I really don't have a lot of my money right now so i can't really afford to spend more than $10 on each filter. I also don't want to have to replace the filters again after I upgrade to the 5 gallon tanks.
