So I'm SLOWLY starting a tank. I've done plenty of research and know that you need at least 8 - 10 times the filtration.

So my first question is should I get 2 penguin 350's or 1 canister filter. I read that with canister filter it doesn't have to be 8 - 10 times.

Last question if I do go the 2 penguin route should I mount them on opposite sides of the tank, or side by side.

I am setting up this aquarium slowly getting equipment here and there and I want suggestions from advance hobbyists.
Thanks

I would go with a canister filter, the penguin filters are less than reliable. With canister you need only about 5-6x GPH. For your tank size, I recommend the Fluval 306. I am running the 406 on my 75 and the 206 on my 40 and have to say they are great filters.
