I have slot left next to my filter...after this, I'm thinking about exchanging the powerhead for another filter. Any good filters that are $35 or less?

Hello again al...

I generally find you get what you pay for. If you don't pay much, most times you don't get much. Hagen has a good filter and if you check Amazon, you may get a good deal for the amount you can spend.

I think it all depends on what space you have then buy a filter to fit

The eheims I had are called power line great filters but a lot more than $35

The good thing with the power line is you can keep adding modules until you read the full tank dept I'm sure you can do the same with some other filter
This is great as the filter them also sucks rubbish from the tank base

I agree with T1, power heads 97.99% of the time are not needed unless you have a certain set up/species that needs it.

A lot of people here are pretty much saying powerheads aren't necessary and useless for the most part. If this is truly the case, I have a powerhead in my 29gal with an airline because it's aesthetically pleasing and it's a treadmill for my fish, a somewhat river effect. Waste of money or not, I like them. It's called a hobby for a reason. You get some things you want and don't need, but you like them, and it's all good.
