Right now I have a Penn Plax mini filter. It has chemical and biological filtration and I think a bit of mechanical, but not much as the intake is not powerful at all. (Hence, it works well for bettas who do not do well with current)
I also have a Tetra Mini 25 watt submersible heater that sticks on the side. I didn't have it in when I took the picture. It keeps the tank consistently at about 79. (According to my thermometer! Apparently some presets don't work as well as others. This one is great). I recommend both filter and heater.
Fishwise there are three fancy guppies living there quite nicely. I moved them there to keep it cycled and help feed the plants. =P Eventually there will be a betta, (and the guppies will be moved)
I think it would work for 3 guppies, or 3 little minnows, or a betta and maybe a snail.
I have to feed the plants about 2x a week with Flourish or they start to wilt...
The more plants the better, I understand. (NEVER get nitrite or nitrate readings at all)
I like how it's working out.
If you make one please post it!
