75 Gallon Filtering

Going to be setting up a 75 gallon Tetra tank pretty soon. What type of filter system would you use on this size tank and why? I have had quite a few tanks over the years but nothing this size with small canister and HOB filters. Your feedback greatly appreciated.

Thanks Bill

I would run 2 canister filters rated for 75 gallon each.
Run a surface skimmer on 1 of them.


If it were easy we wouldn't be here

Hello Dak...

I used four dual sponge filters when I set up my 75 G Goldfish tank. These filters are cheap, $10.00 each and efficient. They're easy to clean and you never need to buy filter media. I like them because they filter and aerate the water as well as the expensive gizmos, but don't create tidal waves in the water that will disturb the smaller fish.
