Want To Remove Filter Compartment From Aqua One Aquanano 30
I recently purchased an Aqua One AquaNano 30 with the plan to house a betta. However I didnt realise until I got it that the rear of the tank has a filter compartment built in that takes the depth of the tank down from 30cm to 22cm. This is rubbish as it means this 6.5 gallon tank becomes 4.8 at best.
So I want to remove the rear filter compartment and stick with a standard internal filter. Does anyone know if this will be easy to do?
Here is a view of the compartment:

Most do but the odd one doesn't, the Dennerle nano cube is one that doesn't
- 20 gallon: Posh shrimp tank:2 panda taiwan bee shrimp, 14 F1 hybrid bee shrimps and 30 taitibee
- 15 gallon: 2 x 24watt T5 + 23watt LED, pressurised Co2 injections and dosed with ferts

Well, I got it out :)
I basically got a tiny flat head screw driver and went up and down the sides of the rubber and eased it all off, took over an hour but now I have a 6.5 gallon tank so im much happier. Not to mention the Fluval U1 filter I have replaced it with is so much quieter. Only problem is I had to chuck the filter media so my cycle is starting over...
