Agree with melosu... you don't really need any other filtration for a successful tank. But personally, I like having something cannister-like to run chemical media in, as well as providing a little mechanical filtration. I've got a Marineland 250 HOT filter that I run GFO (granulated ferric oxide) and Purigen in and it works well for me. Quiet and unobtrusive on the back. Whatever you use, just make sure you clean out the mechanical filter part of it (floss, sponge, etc) on a weekly basis. If you neglect it, it can cause nitrate issues down the road.
great! thanks so much..:p
