The dimensions are pretty big, lol. About 9 inches long and 4 inches wide, and about 3 1/2 inches thick. That's just guessing, I didn't measure it. And that's the 350 model, with 100W heater. The 250 model has a 50W model, and is probably a little smaller. Will let you know what it is like as well, lol.

Oh, and I can't even hear it, and has good flow.

OK - those are close to the dimensions I was imagining. Thanks. Let me know how the 250 model is.

I just opened the 250 and it's about the same in width and thickness, but only about half the length. Looks like it will fit in a 10G both vertically or horizontally. The 350 model will only fit horizontally. Just got the 250 in yesterday. Now I just need the 2 new tanks, lol.

Thanks - I think I'm going with the Ekip 350 for the 20 gallons. All I need are 2 of those and one strip light (I have the second one already) and I"m good to go !!! Just gotta clean those tanks and reseal them -- I'm procrastinating that bit as I'm almost expecting a near disaster there LOL

So what's going in the 2 new (yet to get) tanks ? Or should I ask it this way "so what fish are spawning NOW ! ?" LOL

Also, with the 350, it gets shipped with sponge filters in it, as well as packets of carbon. I also bought the extra packets of ceramic rings for it. I'm not using the carbon, but I do have the ceramic rings in mine as well.

Not sure about the 2 10G tanks yet. I got 1 with my babies in it. As soon as my other 10G goes through it's diatom phase, will move them to the other 10G, which is going to be planted. The 2 new tanks will be as follows:
1 planted 10G tank
1 breeder/egg tank

So in total, I'll have the following:
2 Planted 10G tanks
2 Breeder tanks with breeder sponge filters and a heater and bubbler

Ah, thanks - didn't know it could hold ceramic rings. That's pretty neat. I'll make some this week when I make my new aquarium cave / planter combos for the SA cichlid 20G.

The ceramic cylinders it comes with are in little filter bags that you put inside the unit.

LOL ok - but buying them is no fun when I can make them I was thinking I'd put them in unused knee hi pantyhose as a bag.
