Question New 75 gal tank...

Hey y'all....gotta a new 75 gal set up from a client of mine. It came with a Fluval 405 canister filter. I have not had a canister for years. Is this a good filter for this tank?

It's a good filter but has long been superseded by the 406 so service parts may be harder to source. I have an equivalent JBL canister and I use it in a 46 gallon. I would always go bigger when it comes to filtration and be looking at 6-10 x tank volume an hour. The next in the fluval range of the FX6.

Yeah very easy to use. It should be ok but I'd go bigger. Especially with cichlids.
