    One Or Two Filters?

    For me it would be better to not have a hang on filter due the the tank design. Anyone know how thick the pipes are for the fluval 307's? maybe i will just go down the route of 2x Fluval 307's for the 240 Litre tank of Cichlids. 2x 407 i think will be overkill

    Filter For Juwel Rio 240 With Cichlids?

    But dont the extra two pipes going in and out of the tank for the additional external filter look ugly too? or are you saying its easier to cover them with plants etc?

    Filter For Juwel Rio 240 With Cichlids?

    Well i was thinking about not going with the FX4 and keeping the internal filter that is attached in the tank of the Juwel Rio 240 with it running alongside an external Fluval 407 filter. So both of them running at the same time an hope that will give me enough filtration?

    Filter For Juwel Rio 240 With Cichlids?

    the other option is that i went with a Juwel Rio 240 whichb comes with an internal filter attached and i could run that alongside a Fluval 407 which should give me enough filtration? i think the Juwel filter is capable of 600lph Product Code 87050 Product Bioflow Filter M – Filter System...

    Filter For Juwel Rio 240 With Cichlids?

    I presumed the Rio 240 had quite big holes.............So what if i did go with just one filter a fluval fx4 and it failed, how long would a tank survive with the filter out of action? what im suggesting if if the worse come to the worse i could buy a new filter from a shop almost 7 days a week?

    One Or Two Filters?

    ive looked at a video of them tidal now, they are much bigger than i realised hence why they can produce so much lph........the only problem i see with a 307 & the tidal HOB is that it wont work with the tank lid on either the Juwel Rio 240 or Eheim Vivaline 240?

    How can something so small do up too 400 Litres though? What external fluval model would I pair that with?

    One Or Two Filters?

    i meant too powerful as in overkill especially as it doesn’t seem to fit in many tank cabinets either....... Ok, but they don’t seem very big, would they work similar to an internal filter? One of the tank options would be a Juwel Rio 240 which comes with an internal filter? So could possibly...

    One Or Two Filters?

    What is a HOB I don’t think we have them here in the UK These are the specs from the fluval range we get here in the UK........Maybe 2x 307 model will give me enough filtration for a 240 Litre tank with cichlids in it?

    One Or Two Filters?

    I’m going to get a 240 litre tank with Cichlids which are very messy fish apparently. Firstly considered 1x Fluval FX4 which might be too powerful, so now considering 2x Fluval 207’s or 2x Fluval 307’s. I was planning to try and do maintenance regularly

    One Or Two Filters?

    What is everyone’s view on using either 1 large external filter or 2x smaller external filters? I didn’t like the idea of using 2x small filters as it would mean having four individual pipes going into the tank?

    Filter For Juwel Rio 240 With Cichlids?

    The trouble is the next biggest fluval canister is the FX4 and that is too big to fit in the Juwel Rio 240 cabinet? Do I just go for 2x 207, 2x 307 etc?

    Filter For Juwel Rio 240 With Cichlids?

    I was looking at the Fluval 407 or maybe the Fluval FX4 external filters for a Juwel Rio 240 Litre tank with Cichlids in it? I havent got the tank or filter yet but just seeing what everyones view is? I understand you have to overfilter with Chichlids, but im not even sure the FX4 will even fit...

    Oase Biomaster, 250, 350 Or 600

    The Oase Biomaster 350 is rated at 1100 litres per hour, so would you say that would be sufficient for a 200l tank? I suppose my other question is would a Biomaster 600 be too big/powerful for a 200l tank?

    Oase Biomaster, 250, 350 Or 600

    Im thinking of getting either a 180l, 200l or 240l tank to keep Cichlids. I've heard you should have a minimum of 200l to keep Cichlids, and to overstock them and to over filter them. (im presuming i would get away with a 180l but not ideal) With that in mind what size Oase Biomaster filter...
