Another filtration question.

On my 46, I currently have an XP2. I did have an AC50, but the impeller was damaged from sand. I want to get a really good HOB to work alongside my XP2. The whole left side of my tank has some dead spots where tons of dirt accumulates, and I think it would be great to have a filter on that side. I know I should just buy another impeller for the AC50, but I am wondering if there is anything else out there for a decent price that is much better than the AC50. Thanks.

IME AC is the best brand on the market. I have like overy ten your old AC's that are still working great!

I second the AC recommendation. If it's an issue of dead spots in the tank, perhaps powerheads would serve you better. Still, even with powerheads, my recommendation is AC.

Do you know where I can find an impeller for the AC50 online?
