MISTFLOW is an ultrasonic fog generator for planted tanks. This product was originally designed for DOOA System Terra 30 to keep the moisture but it is compatible with any tanks with emerged aquatic plants. This time, I set it up in my DOOA Neo Glass Terra H36 and I would like to inform you what I like and dislike about this product. But before we get started, take a look at this video!
The setup was much easier than I expected. All I needed to be aware of is the water level must be 1cm above the water level sensor to generate an ideal mist.
Its design is very compact and simple so there’s no need to be afraid of having trouble setting it up.
2. Pros and Cons
This product keeps the moisture of the tank very well. Moisture is very crucial especially in shallow tanks like this. I use DOOA Wabi-kusa Wall 60 in this setup, and the wall part needs appropriate moisture to keep the emerged aquatic plants healthy. Also, MISTFLOW makes the tank visually stunning.
Despite the benefits, there are several problems that I want you to know. First of all, the power generating the mist is too strong in most cases. The mist went out of the tank and splashed on the cabinet. Just as I showed in the video, the cabinet of the tank got wet after using MISTFLOW for 10 minutes. After adjusting the water level for a couple of hours, I finally succeeded in making an ideal mist. In order to achieve this, I used another optional accessory from DOOA called MISTFLOW CAP. This product prevents the water from splashing when MISTFLOW is turned on.
When you are using MISTFLOW in shallow tanks, I highly recommend using MISTFLOW CAP with it. As I mentioned above, MISTFLOW is designed for System Terra 30 and Mizukusa Mist Wall. These products have spaces for setting up MISTFLOW so the water doesn’t get splashed.
I would say this product is brilliant. When it came out, I was surprised by the price. It was much lower than I expected. The price may differ according to your country but I think MISTFLOW worths much more than you pay!
