PetWorx Nano 45

Recommended Posts

WhySoCRS

Hi, has anyone had any experience with a PetWorx Nano 45? Local fish store has one on sale for $90, considering grabbing it while it's at that price.

It's a all in one set up, filter compartments at the back, pump, sponge media, lid, LED, looks nice but wouldn't mind knowing if anyone has any experience with one though.

Cheers.

I'm not allowed to bring anymore new tanks into the house 😄

I saw a review of the nano30 on youtube. Looks like a nice little, all in one unit. 

Lots of holes that need to be blocked with mesh if you are using it for shrimp however.

You could do a review of it and let us all know whether it's any good.

At least it's a good price at $90, it's usually $119.

Yeah I watched that review, was thinking if I grabbed it (if it's still there) that I would have to use either SS mesh or sponge to block the holes up, would be an ideal heavily planted shrimp tank.

We sell lots of them and they are very loved :) If using for shrimp or fry, you add mesh on the inside of the filter. That way its not even visable! The other easy mod is blocking up those slots entirely and then cutting into the top of the plastic wall above them to create some surface skimming action! This can then be meshed to! Most impressive the plant growth you can achieve with that little LED, and its kinda OP to even add another one.

Ended up buying it, was still there thankfully, have no idea where it's going to go but I wanted to grab it while it was there at that price, $90, win.

It'll be a planted shrimp tank, not sure which kind of shrimp though, nor what to plant, but would love to do a heavily planted nano some day and think this would be ideal.

Well this set up is still sitting in it's box, still undecided what to do with it, don't really have a spot for it at the moment in the home so just going to hang on to it for awhile.

I was looking at getting this by the sources I found were all out of stock. I liked that it was a taller tank.... but worried the back would take out too much tank space 🤔

Yeah I don't mind the tank, just in it's box still as I'm not sure where I can put the tank too but I figured I'd hang on to it as it was a good price and also a good set up.

Could come a long as a Bloody Mary or Blue Dream tank perhaps in time, but for now I'm working on my CRS 70l.

      At the moment we feed them with mosquito larvaes and shrimplets from my reds colony (argh!) I just received Daphnia cysts, and I hope I can breed them them fast...

      You don't need to dilute vinegar. Full strength vinegar should kill any nasties. Just rinse everything well and leave it to dry in the sun.  If you are reusing the gravel, boil it or pour boiling water on it. If you were using planted substrate, replace it with new substrate.

      I'm particularly worried about the amphipods which have become a bit of a plague and burrowed into the substrate. But i guess removing all the aquasoil should resolve the issues. Hence why i want to run a diluted bleach compound into the system to ensure everything is taken care of. Would I be able to do the same with vinegar; running a diluted solution of water and vinegar into the tank and this will eradicate the problems for a restart? I actually didn't think of this; I will definitely give this a go; i rinse out one of the dual sponges in the CBS tank with the aquarium water and use it to seed the tank. Great idea! Thanks @jayc   I was going to try a reputable breeder in QLD; but agree with you.  Especially for someone very amateurish as me; i'd be easily fooled into buying the wrong type.  Thanks again for the advice!

      ✌️   Absolutely only use bleach as the last resort, with nothing in the tank. (6parts water to 1part bleach for future reference). Even white vinegar is safer and probably just as effective for removal of planaria and worms. After you clear the old tank of gravel, give the glass a quick wipe with a vinegar soaked kitchen paper towel. Rinse and let dry in the sun. Use vinegar if that wasn't clear.   Set up the new tank as desired. If your other tanks are free of pests, you can use the filter media to seed this new tank. Wash the filter media in the water of the new tank. Yes, it will be dirty for a while, but you will have seeded it with millions of beneficial bacteria and probably cycle the new tank in a week.   PRL, real PRL, are pretty rare in Aus.  They will demand a high price for them, so check the legitimacy of the PRL. Find out the PRL history. Nice looking CRS is not the same as PRL.
