Pros and Cons of Zoo Med Nano 10


  • Great circulation – the oil sheen disappeared
  • This filter is quiet, practically silent
  • Overall no complaints and it works great.


  • Very quiet, need to check the tank’s surface agitation to make sure it’s running
  • 90 gph is way too much for a 3 gal tank
  • The mechanical filter that came with the unit as it’s on the outlet side (huge design flaw)
  • The filter is outside the tank – in/out tubes move water through filter
