So I just upgraded Paarthurnax to a 5.5gal tank (yay) and he is just loving it - it's so cute! I'll get pictures the next time I'm in my room when the sun is present.
However, I noticed how quickly the water gets cloudy and it bothers me. I figured I would just keep up with daily and weekly water changes (because I don't want to cycle this tank), but even after just a day of him being in there, the water was already gross. Messy little guy.
So I've decided I'm going to get him a filter. I was doing some research and came across this - http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...54&pcatid=3954
It requires an air stone/air pump, which I have in in my goldfish tank next to Paarth's tank.
I just wanted to know everyone's thoughts on these filters? Are they any good?
My parents are going to shoot me if I have to buy another thing that's going to need to be plugged in and I don't exactly have the free-will to spend money right now after purchasing a bunch of stuff for my goldfish - and filters are pricey..
If someone else has a better option for a 5.5gallon let me know. I want my tanks to be a quiet as possible, so keep that in mind if you have a suggestion please :3
