    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to showcase the latest custom filter unit we built for a customer's 10 gallon display tank at a local aquarium society's show this week...

    Nice anx practical all in one unit Mr.bigblock .
    This dark and Black tank look made me think about an idea of having your big block filters in black colour design too .
    Good luck with your new product on the market .

    I've been thinking of trying one of these for a 60 gallon, but my sponges do a good job. Still, in BB tanks they are ugly. Do these come in black or blue so they don't stand out so much? Do you make one that can handle a 60 gallon or would I need two?

    Hi Liz,

    The big block would definitely take care of the 60 gallon. You might be able to use the small block as well, just depends on the bio-load. As for the color, stay tuned...we're working on it!

    Hey Patty,

    I have a small block in my 20H and it works fine. If you have a 20L, then you definitely don't have the tank height to accommodate the small block. But, we will be coming out with a "nano" shorter version that you see in the video. It'll stand 7.5" high and should be able to handle a 20 gallon.
