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.

      +1 for the sponge.

      Definitely go the sponge.

      I'm no expert, but 1 does seem a fair bit "chunkier" then the rest. Got a bit of a new problem though. I saw 1 of the shrimp cleaning away near the filter intake grill last night. He did look like he might have just been small enough to slip through. I was thinking of buying some filter sponge to jam behind the grill to stop them getting in.

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!

      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon
