I would say a Hydor Nano, but my friend just picked up a UV sterilizer by Gamma, and the powerhead is tiny! He is going to plumb it in-line, so he gave me the powerhead, for curing rock.

Wake, I figured it was gonna be the Hydor. I was hoping there was something even smaller than that, and it sound like you scored something! Would love to see a picture of it if you could

And I have one even smaller than those on my UV sterilizer. Maybe if you ask your LFS if he has anything laying around...I know my LFS guy has a whole warehouse of unused stuff laying around...

Found this on Dr Foster's, it's 1.75" x 1.5" x 2". Here are the product specs.

And it's only like $11.49 on foster's! You'll pay more in shipping, lol.

Thanks J, that gives me hope that I'll be able to fit a small powerhead in on another project that I'm doing at my parents house ....I'm actually embedding a custom made rimless corner tank in a really cool safe corner of their kitchen (will reveal that project in a thread when I get closer to starting), and needed the smallest powerhead available. That Rio is pretty small... that just may work
