I got a 2.5 gal minibow today (purple
) anyway it came with a micro whisper filter and a light (plus other stuff I don't need).
Anyways I have some problems. The filter is HUGE its almost as big as the one I use for my 10 gal. I thought when it said micro it meant micro... I really don't want it taking up the whole tank. Has anyone gotten a new filter for theirs and if so what kind and how much? This filter is also really loud so I'm trying to figure out a way to make it vibrate less.
My next problem is the light. Its an incandescent bulb and puts out very little light compared to my halogens... plus I think its going to get really hot.. I'm testing it out now (there aren't any fish in there yet). Has anyone been able to change to a halogen bulb and where did you get it?
I'm so glad I got it and it was a deal ($29 but at least I don't have to wait for it to get shipped from amazon and I got it in the color I liked best
Any advice stories or tips are greatly appreciated.
Oh btw be looking for another thread in the fishcare section.. I need to decide who is going in here and there is a long story behind and I'm asking for help on all my forums with it.
