G'day from Melbourne Australia :-)

Hi everyone,

About to get myself a 5' x 2' x'2 freshwater tank and would LOVE your opinions of the Juwel internal filter system. Hubby likes the look of the Juwel Vision 450 curved glass tank but I'm not confidnt the internal filter will be up to par.
I'm interested in a tank with a sump set up.
What are your experiances and opinions on either?
Haven't decied on Aussie Native Fish of staying with Tropical .
Either way ... we both want BIG fish. I'm the one who runs and maintains our tanks,
Looking forward to your input.
Regards,
Red

Welcome. I like sumps simply because there is way more options then a limited filter. If you like both by all means run both. You can make a sump as big as you would like. Throw plants in it for added help and boom you have a great set up

What are the sumps like noise wise? Compared to a hood mounted trickle system?

I'm currently running a trickle filter system on a small 40 ltr tank, which isn't to noisy but wonder what a large set up would be like.

I've also had the traditional under tank canister system for my 4" tank. It cycled 300 ltrs an hour and I found the noisiest thing was actually the air pump for my air-stone!
