    Default VERY SMALL powerhead/pump/filter @ Aquariums West?

    So after trying the Finnex PX360, and Eheim 350 Surface Skimmer (which to my horror promptly circulated several of my fish into its intake) I've come to the realization that I need a TINY pump/powerhead/filter to get some water movement in my Mini-S.
    I recall seeing something at Aquariums West. Anyone know the name of the device?

    Unless you guys recommend that I shouldn't bother with using anything to move the water in the Mini-S...

    Have you considered these internal and mini filters?
    They won't provide tons of filtration but at least some water movement (I find the AZOO pretty nice on nano ADA setups).

    I second the Elite Mini. I used to use them in my Betta tanks. They are also adjustable.

    I have an Aqueon internal mini filter available works very well and is adjustable.

    Thanks fellas. After doing some quick research, as much as I like over filtering my tanks I think the Elite is probably the best for the little 3 gallon Mini-S. Don't think I can find anything smaller than 8.5cm x 4.0cm x 4.5cm.

    I'll look around for it.

    I would change the sponge on the Elite. I can grab a piece of Poret foam if you want to try something finer.

    Should've asked you to grab one for me. Easier to get to your place than drive to King Eds
