What size tank would you really upgrade to a canister filter? I recently inherited a 55 gallon that I plan on setting up in the future, however I don't have a filter for it and don't know if a regular HOB Filter would suffice.
Any help would be appreciated!
I have a 55 gallon that has two HOB running the tank. I don't think there's an official rule to this. In my opinion I think it depends on what fish you have in the tank. So if you went large cichilds in that tank I would look at getting a canister but IMO, I think 75 gallon is when I would consider getting a canister .
