ohhh, I like that... An improvement over the original biorb IMO, never liked the big round ball design, too hard to see everything in the tank, but this one looks very.. eccentric in a contemporary way.

My Wife has the Fluval Chi Tank. It's a very small tank to be sure...

I'm looking for stocking/nano-fish suggestions... I realize that I may be limited to keeping only a Beta in there, however I thought I'd ask for suggestions.

Thanks,

Matt

MMM the Chi was a tank i ALMOST bought. However, i did a bunch of research on it and it seems that there is a major design flaw that makes the tank frustrating to use, which is the filter. Apparently, the lidless design causes the water to evaporate very quickly and the filter is designed to draw water from the top of the tank so owners found themselves topping off the tank every few days, especially in the summer or when a heater is used. When they didnt, the filter motor would run without drawing water and burn out. Also i read that the filter does not move as much water as it should and the trickling of the water returning into the tank does not create enough current. This limits the tank inhabitants to bettas and snails since the small size of the tank and limited filtration capacity IMO. Although its a really beautiful tank and would look lovely with a nice betta in it.
