After troubles with filtration for my Fluval Edge particularly for Betta, I came across the ZooMed Nano 501 and decided to give it a try. I have not regretted this decision. A small exterior canister, that was easily adapted with tubing purchased at Home Depot, it sits well under the cabinet out of sight. The spraybar and intake tube were a little long for the Edge, but was easily cut down to size. For even more gently filtration the spraybar I have mounted longways under the water, which suits the tank well. The canister itself for its size can hold a lot of media, although the carbon packet it comes with is a bit overkill in size and barely fit into it with the bio rings. This canister can also be modified with all manner of filter media to meet the users desires, and the compartments are roomy enough to fit a host of media options. This canister is for certain for small tanks, but works well on the edge and would likely also do well for up to a ten gallon. It is remarkably silent, no noise at all, and has very solid construction.

Omega one appeared to me an excellent food, considering its ingredients and the reputation that comes along with anything by this company. I did however have some issues with this food. One, not all my fish will eat it. The only tank that readily accepts it is my neon tank, they, and the Betta with them love this stuff. My guppies, Harlequins, other Betta, red eyes and phantoms completely ignore it. Even my pond goldfish really don't care for it. It makes no sense to me. (The Goldfish will, however, eat Omega one Goldfish flakes, go figure) The second odd thing, there are hard "bits", stick like pieces that can't be broken up. Feels like tiny little twigs! They are hard as a rock, and I have to pick them out, making feeding a bit of a nuisance.

All of my fish love this food, and readily accept it. The only drawback, is feeding small quantities at a time, as too large an amount will dissolve and get sucked up by filters quickly if you leave them on while feeding.

For some unknown reason, the only fish in my menagerie who will eat this food is my Betta's, and, only the ones that float. Most sink and get into the gravel/rocks below, and end up "fuzzy" and are hard to remove with gravel vacuuming. Though the ingredients are very good, and it seems a quality product, the immediate sink action makes this a bad choice for tanks with a lot of flow and larger gravel bottoms.

I wouldn't use anything else. Never had such consistently good tanks until I began using this conditioner.
