Getting a 40 breeder soon. Curious about filtration. Not a fan of canisters or sponge filters. Anyone out there filter a 40 breeder with a single aqua clear 50 or 70 ? How does it do ??
It’s not about the noise. I just don’t like having a big honkin canister under my tank And I have a 3 year old who I don’t need messing with it. Stand I have isn’t a cabinet or anything that I can hide it inI know you said you aren’t a fan of canisters but I have canisters and HOB filters and the canisters are much, much, much quieter than the HOB. And they do a better job of cleaning IMO. If you still want an HOB then I like marineland biowheel filters
Not planning on fry but either way , yeah I always put a sponge on the intakeAre you going to be having fry in this tank? I've been a big fan of the aqueoun quietflow filters. In tanks with fry or shrimp I buy a pre-filter made for a fluval edge. It fits over the inlet in most cases. Slows the flow a little and keeps the Lil guys out
