    soon I might be getting a 40g tank any one have any suggestions for a filter for it?

    2 Aquaclear 50's should do a good job on a 40 gal tank.

    2 penguin bio-wheels 200 would be fine or maybe some sponge or canister really your opinoin

    2 weaker AquaClears or 2 weaker Bio-Wheels - OR one more powerful AquaClear or Bio-Wheel. All depends on your wallet! :) A 40G could do well with one powerful filter. However, 2 filters would be great too. So it's all up to you.

    well the bigges bio-wheel that i am aware of is not big enough for a 40 gallon for 10x amount the bigges is 350gph thatss why i said bio-wheel 200 by penguin because two of those would be a total of 400gph 10x amount of gallons

    A BIO-Wheel 330 is for 40-70 gallons. It's basically a two-in-one.

    I don't really know anything about the subject, because I bought both of my tanks in kits that already came with filters. But what makes BioWheel and cannister filters so much better and more expensive?

    I just bought an Eheim Professional Canister Filter for my 39G almost 40G, cost me a pretty penny but a decided to buy the better one as I saved money on the tank and stand and light which I bought at da lfs I work @.
