Hob Filters For 70 Gallon??

So I had an older filter for 5+ years and it stopped working. Are there any HOB filters that are relatively cheap and that are good for a 70 gallon freshwater tank??

For a 70 gallon I would go with two Marineland Emperors for 800 gph in flow. You want 10x or better the water collumn in flow. These are very good filters. The clam shells can be filled with bio ceramics.

I have an aquaclear 110 on my 75. They certainly aren't the cheapest but mines over 15 years old and still works great.

I recommend canisters on anything larger than 55 gallons, but the Fluval C4 HOB is about as close as you can get.

I'd definetly recomed the aqueon quite flow series...now I always use them in combination with a fluval canister filter....the fluval houses my bio filtration and I use the aqueons....two 75s on my 150 and 1 75 on a 75 gallon and 55 gallon....for my carbon filtration and water polishing....they are cheap and they run great

I would use the Seachem tidal 110
Yes, I also have a Seachem Tidal 110, on a 55 gal. planted tank, and I think it's the best HOB out there. (AquaClear is #2 IMO).

AC110 or Fluval C4. You'll need 2 for a 70G.
