Please vote for the type filtration you use!
is this a power filter
yes it is a power filter if u look to the right u can see a motor housing on it.
Wait.. I missed the "multiple filters option" I have on all tanks a penguin biowheel filter and on my 2 larger tanks a eheim ecco on each
Love the caniser filter, easy to clean, swap media's
Most of my tanks have multiple filters. All have either a HOB or an internal filter (Whisper "i" series). One also has a UGF powered with a powerhead. Another has a refugium setup, and another has enough plants that it could probably run filter-less.
Power filter on the fresh tank. Whisper brand.
thats what I love about my eheim eccos, they are so easy to take care of!
whats the difference between a power filter and a canister filter?
Power filter hangs on the outside back of the tank and a canister is usually hidden outside underneath Carol
i use different kind of filters depending on wich tank. my sw im curently building a sump, my cichlid tank has power and ugf and my community tanks have power filters
We have a canister for our 120g and HOB/power filters on the rest multiple on some tanks.
All my tanks have UGFs with powerheads, my 125 also has an Eheim 2028, and one 55 has a powerhead on the UGF and a HOB filter, the 55g shrimp tank has two HOB filters, one is drawing water from the UGF. The only frustrating thing about my set up are the MTS snails that get into the filters...this can't be good for the filters, and I know it must be traumatic for the snails....:;dk
I have a Tetra Whisper filter that is in-tank. I'm guessing it's considered a power filter, but I'm not sure. And on my next tank, I'm definetly going to get a filter that is on the outside of the tank.
I had an under gravel filter and took it out when i went heavily planted and upgraded the light substrate and co2. I have an Eheim 2215 and half a dozen HOB filters of various makes and models the one i really want to get and try on my next tank is a biowheel i have heard good things and they look like a neat toy. They were on sale the other day $10 off and i was so tempted to buy one just to try it out.
I love my penguin bio-wheel 250!!! :;perfect
I use a power filter on my big goldie tank, but for the safety of fry and small fish am using corner/box filters in the little tanks, so I chose corner filters because I have more of those. Also, corner filters run on air pumps, and I literally have more air pumps than I have tanks. I swear I only bought one, and one came from a friend... the other 4 I can't account for.
