Filter questions.

Okay I just picked up a used 26 gallon bowfront tank and It doesn't have Anything.

I also have a 20 gallon tank with a penguin 150 but I want to add more filtration.

For my 20 I'm thinking just an aqua clear because I already have a bio wheel.

The thing I need to know is if I do add second filter to my 20 what size should I get ?

And for my 26 gallon I want to way over filter that also but id rather just use 1 in that just over rated size. And what should in get aquaclear it C series?

For the 26 the c3 would be perfect. I had a c3 on my 20 long set on the lowest setting and it was perfect. On a 26 bow the flow could be adjusted to need your needs, its a really great filter I think a c4 even on the lowest setting might blow some things around. For the 20 since you already have a good filter just get the fluval ac30 which is what they recommend.

I'm ordering the c3 as the c4 seems to powerful for a 26 gallon. Anyone object or want to throw in thoughts please do ordering first thing in the AM
