I'm sorry I don't know how to post links.

I know I seem to be changing my mind constantly but I think I've fallen in love with a little tank :) which could possibly be a puffer tank, but I don't know what a PF filter is and when I've done searches it hasn't helped! also the make of heater. The tank looks real nice cos it's got curved glass front so viewing is much better. The tank and stand cost 100ish depending on where you look new (I really don't know if it's a good deal. One site claims the lighting filtration is good for growing live plants.

Can anyone tell me how a PF filter is different from the fluval one I've got in my current tank or let me know if this is a good deal or not.

(I've just copied this from one of the sites selling the tank- I'm sorry I don't know how to post links - but if you search for interprets pod aquariums there are lots of sites to choose from I only looked at UK sites)

"Interpets NEW Fish Pod Aquariums are the ideal starter kit, suitable for Tropical or Coldwater fish. They come in 2 sizes and are available with a cabinet stand.
Each aquarium contains a twin lighting system consisting of two low energy bulbs, one Bright White light for the daytime and one Cool Blue Moon light for nightime viewing.
Both aquariums come complete with award winning PF Filter and Deltatherm Heater.
Also in each there is Filter Start, Tap Safe and a Thermomter.
These really are exceptionally good looking aquariums with fantastic cabinet stands to match. We do not have a picture of the cabinets yet, but they are black with one door on the 48 lt

(Plants,Gravel,Fish not included)

Dimensions:
48lt Aquarium W=42cm D=36cm H=41cm aprox"

(I think 48l is about 10 uk gallons)

I don't know that - but it's not cheap for the size of tank, and not knowing much about filters and lighting I don't know if it's a good deal or not. The only thing I do know is it's a new type of filter that's suppose to be really good but not sure how? And the lighting I really don't have a clue about - but the night time blue light sound really cool!

well if its not cheap for the tank, maybe it would be a better idea to get a tank roughly that size, possibly less expensive, and buy the light bulb * i know i can get them here pretty inexpensively* and buy the filter separately?
I don't know much about the either, but have found buying a kit is usually more expensive and many times don't end up getting exactly what you wanted

I think the filter is build in to the hood (I'm not having much luck finding good descriptions and pictures of the tank yet) and when I searched for the filter they all looked different I really wouldn't know where to start!

Hi sorry if I sounded ungrateful for the sound advice it's definately the way to go if you know enough about the equipment I'm sure - alas I can just about handle putting together flat pack furniture given simple instructions
