    Hello Friends

    I have purchased a 30 gallon Boyu tank EA 80 which comes with a inbuilt filtration system. The filter is installed on the top. The filteration system consists of a pump which sucks water and passes it through a bio-sponge. I am not sure if this would suffice.

    Any insights would help.

    Ive seen these tanks and there over head filter systems. I like my canisters but if i had that tank id give it a go why not? If you don't trust it fully run something along side it like an internal power filter. I think it will do a good job, its basically a wet/dry over head system. Have you checked out reviews on you tube because thats what i would be doing.

    Hi! Just wanted to check how your tank is doing. The Boyu setup is one of the cheaper options available here. Do you have a planted setup? Thanks.

    I owned a boyu ... nice tank, but it cracked one night and dumped 100 gallons of water all over my floor - and ran into the living room ruining the carpet. Insurance guy came out and took measurements to ensure the tank was absolutely level - and it was spot on. It was sitting on a marble tiled floor that was completely level with no bumps.

    Having said that - the overhead filter on it was amazing - like a wet / dry system. You can customize the media in them (or you could in mine. I put filter floss and sponge.
