    I'm getting a 40gl. Any recommendations on a filter? I don't have tons of money but I like a clean tank. I also always way over filter ( my 20gl has a 50gl filter)

    The AquaClear 70, just ordered one on Amazon for my 40B.

    I'm running a aquaclear 70 and a 50 on my 40B. That's 500gph, good water flow and the fish dont mind it to much.

    I'm running two Aqueon 30's on our 29 gal and a Aqueon 50 with a Marineland 200 on the 38 gal.

    Only had one on each tank for the longest time but so many on here recommend extra filtration that I thought I'd give it a try.

    I must say the tanks do look crystal clear.

    If you don't want ALOT of water movement (current) then I would run 2 aquaclear 50s. That's 400gph which is what I'm going to eventuly going to do instead of the 70 ,50 combo.

    You can even get just one AquaClear 70 for 300 gph and run a sponge filter on the side.

    What about a canister filter? I hate that one side of the tank is clean and not the other when using a HOB. This tank is going to be my largest and I really want it to be perfect

    I'd recommend the Fluval 206, I just ordered one for my 40 Breeder also.
