Fluval Chi
 
I saw a Fluval Chi in a store the other day, any thoughts on it? Looks like it's got a dinky filter, what fish would you put in it? I'm thinking about getting it but I'm not sure if it would be worth the money.

I almost bought one the other day, i think they would make excellent betta tanks. However, the filter, as you noticed, made me hesitate. Also the open top makes me think that evaporation will be an issue also... Have you seen the Fluval Edge? Is is similar and has a closed top, also a bit bigger and the filter looks like an aquaclear thats possibly removable for a filter of your choice.

The problem I have with the Edge is that because it has a "top" on it, .he only way to get in to do maintenance, aquascaping, catch fish, etc is through the tiny six inch square on top. I'm not the daniest person and while I'd be able to fit my hand in no problem, I think I would have a hard time getting in there to take care of things. That's why the Chi intrigued me.

Well it does seem like a really interesting tank, ive had good experiences with Fluval Branded products so the filter shouldnt be too bad, worse comes to worse, you do a larger water change each week, and 1 gallon is 20% of tank so it shouldnt be too much trouble to keep the water clean.
