Nice. I have that tank too, but I warn you-- that filter is VERY VERY STRONG. It will suck up his tail and harm him. I highly suggest covering it in either a filter media bag or hosiery.

I'd still get an intake pre-filter sponge for it, vibration can cause the pipe to settle in.

Look up "fluval edge pre-filter sponge", it'll extend the life of the filter cartridge and build up a second location for bio-filtration.

I think it looks nice! Just be careful those plants don't harm his tail. :) I would also add a background - they can make such a difference to the way the tank looks! :)

Does the sponge also reduce current flow?

Thank you Bombalurina :) I plan to get a background soon, just haven't found any that caught my eye. I'm looking for a greco-roman themed one.

theres a greco roman one on the market, i have it locally and personally. though its about a foot tall. those ornaments arent the easiest to clean also in the small cracks and what not. atleast not with a toothbrush.

Nice tank :) Hopefully I'll come across one soon.

Does anyone know if the filter sponges lower the filter flow at all?

Nice set-up!

The only thing I notice missing is a thermometer and heater?
