im not getting any replies from cichlid forum so im turning to the pros at AA.
So I just ordered a Profile powerhead 602 in which pushes 200 gph
and is for tanks 30-150 gal
. I want to make the powerhead flter pretty much the same as the one in the article at cichlid- forum
but im not sure if the powerhead would be strong enough to prefilter my 55 gal
. Im not trying to make it my main filter but i just want to get my tank running .
Another thing is my lfs
sells a white diy
filter foam. could i put this around the outside instead of the "batter" . and how mush charcoal do i put inside?? Also are there any alternatives to charcoal??
