O... Then yeah... Yours just doesn't have tannins I guess. I'm sure there are lots of members here that would LOVE to trade with you if you really want tannins lol.

I'm no good at canisters lol. I'd go with HOB though since it's such a small tank

Ok then... Your obviously better at this then me lol. I'm a fan of HOB on anything under 55 gallons. It's just easier IMO. But hey, go for it if you can get a discount!
