| | what should i do.
i am going to get a 36g or 46g bowfront aquarium and make it a freshwater planted. it will have a stand and a canopy. i do not want to have HOB filters because i dont want to have the tank be so far away from the wall. for filtration i originally thought of getting a small wet-dry filter. get the tank drilled, have an overflow put in, simple as that. but i read somewhere i should not have a wet-dry. what are the reasons for that? i have been doing aquarium maintenance for a few months and have come across a lot of canister filters that start leaking, they stop pushing the water back to the tank, priming it doesnt work, there has just seemed to be something wrong with them in time. if you guys have time, please tell me what type of filtration i should have for my aquarium. for the 46, the 36, id just settle for a canister, I GUESS.
thanks for the replys in advance.
