| | Canister filter question??
Tank specs: 75 gallons, 260 watts lighting, CO2 (pressureized), ferts and traces
I want to get a canister filter but... I don't know if I need one or two (all the reading I have done most sources say to turn the water over anywhere from 5-10 times per hour.) Seems most canisters rated for 75 gallons or above only turn over the water 2-3 per hour.
Everyone here seems to agree that canisters are best for planted tanks which I understand. Most have spraybars or at least spraybar accessories which don't churn the water as much which makes the CO2 last longer.
Eheim seems to be a favorite. So any suggestions on which model and what to fill it with ?
Currently running an emperor 400 and its noisy even after I clean it.
Thanks for any replies?
