I have 1 50 gallon acrylic salt water aquarium.
I am converting it from a general saltwater fish tank to a reef tank. I am changing the old 15 year old under gravel filter to a wet/dry filter.
I would like a recommendation on a filter.
I have been looking at 2 models.
The Eheim 2227 and the Clear Aquatics (formerly Aqua Clear Aquatics) Pro 75 Wet/DryFilter
Each looks to have advantages and dis-advantages. The Eheim claims better biological filteration and have a reputation for quality products. The Clear aquatics however, has a built in skimmer and I can place my heater inside as well.
Can anyone help me with any advice? If anyone has any better ideas, I welcome them.
Also, with a reef tank and a wet/dry filter, will I need a seperate filter to filter regular insoulable matter or will the wet/dry filter do it all?
