another question/ U/G filter

Actually more about attachment for it. I saw this pump to put on top of the pipe. Easy enough to see how it works. Now I am wondering if on my 1+gallon hex tank I have the room to put it on. Or if it is just to big.

I am such a noob...

1 gallon, not 10 (ohh, that's a power head...)

It could be too, big, yes?

Yes, a powerhead would blow the fish and water out of a 1g tank. You don't need it.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

White water for guppies...

I suppose fish don't take kindly to being sucked through the gravel!
