This is my first post and any and all help is very much appreciated! I am a beginner that just purchased my first aquarium. It's a 30 gal
. and plan to set up a basic tropical freshwater community tank.
Purchased a Eheim classic 2213 canister filter on a great boxing day sale at BigAl's ... but am wondering if I bought the right filter for my tank? A friend swears by the Emperor 280.
I noticed that the Eheim 2213 is rated for 116 gal
. per hour and have been reading that I should have ten times water turnover per hour - so is the Eheim enough? Should I return it and get the Emperor... or do I get both? I notice that a lot of posts have both canister and HOB
Do I have enough, too much or too little filtration?
