Heck no! That'll be as big as your tank!
Your money would be better spent on a better regular filter.
How often are you doing water changes? How much are you feeding?
we've dropped feeing from twice a day (a tiny amount each time - so technically a pinch full a day)
to less than a pinch full a day.
water changes - i recently (and stupidly) completely changed the water and cleaned the gravel -
after reading up about it, i realised how much i could have effed it up and killed all the fish - but they are still around luckily.
but since then i've taken to doing a 20-30% change weekly.
the water 'greens up' about a day or 2 after.
we recently changed filters to a fully submerged Fluval filter - just a sponge filter inside which i clean on a weekly basis (in tank water).
i have also just invested(?) in a gravel cleaner as there is a considerable amount of poo and other debris at the bottom of the tank.
the black fish keeps himself in the corner of the tank right at the top for some reason - like he's trying to get some air?!?
my main concern is the black fish (aka daddy fish) as he seems to be spending a lot of time at the top of the tank (i dont think its a buoyancy issue - as he is pefectly capable of swimming and keeping lower in the tank) but its almost like he hates being in there - i dont blame him really.
on the other hand, the other 2 fish seem fine (mummy fish and Theo fish) - can you tell that my son named these fish?
also need to replensih water treatment chemicals - any suggestions?
i was, up until recently, using 'NutraFin plus', 'nutrafin Aqua' and 'Tetra Aqua Easy Balance'.
the room which we keep the tank is gets a lot of daylight, so i'm guessing this is feeding the algae issue - but we cant put it anywhere else as the flat gets rather a lot of sunlight throughout each room...
