Filter - Help

Hello Everyone,

I have a 36 gallon tank with driftwood and Lilaeopsis brasiliensis (96watts lights) and I am going to get some small fish - a few shrimp - and maybe a snail.

I have been looking at the AquaClear 70

or over doing it with the Eheim 2026.

I am not sure which filter is right for me. Second I am not sure what media is best in what configuration. Some people only use one for mechanical and the other for biological .. some take out the carbon. I am not sure what combination of media in either set is appropriate.

Thanks a million,

You would probably be okay with either one. For smaller tanks I like the HOB filters, just for easy maintenence. I would remove the carbon from whatever filter you choose though. It may remove things from the water that your plants need.
