The NanoSlim filtration system is suitable for most smaller aquarium tanks. Featuring a thinner black-opaque form, the NanoSlim will blend in effortlessly with your aquarium surroundings. Installation and maintenance is made easy as the filter unobtrusively hangs off the back of your aquarium.

For better filtration, we recommend filling your filter housing with biological media. The addition of biological filter media will create a more suitable habitation for beneficial bacteria to grow, enriching your aquarium and keeping a more reliable and balanced ecosystem. An appropriate biological filter media that we suggest is the Bio Filter Media by Sera which can be placed directly into your filter housing.
For the replacement of your carbon filter cartridges, we recommend using Nylon Filter Bags by Ocean Five in combination with our ROX 0.8 Activated Carbon. The Nylon Filter Bags are also suitable for keeping other smaller filter media contained in your filter housing.
Filtering Foam should not need to be replaced with proper maintenance.
This filter was recommended for my ultum nature systems 45 u nano aquarium. I was very surprised at how quiet this hob filter is, and pleased that you can adjust the flow of the water circulating threw the aquarium.. Great product!!
This filter made awful noise since I first purchased it, and the problem just got worse over time. I contacted the store right away and they told me that this is a good filter and I must be doing something wrong. When the problem just got worse and I sent a video of it, they said they'd refund me for it if I mailed it to them, at my own expense. I didn't want to spend more money on this waste of a product. So I lost nearly $30 on something that only served to frustrate and destroy the peace in my house with its awful, defective noise. Don't buy this filter!!
