So I checked out the Hagen Aquaclean 50 and from what I read about it, I really liked it! I like that it has a natural & silent waterfall, it sounds like the assembly is easy, it's energy efficient, performance reviews were consistent and it's affordable- sounds too good to be true but I hope not lol
I do have a question for you though, regarding what you suggested with placing a heater next to both filters - one on both sides of the tank-
•Currently on my 29g I have one Tetra 10-30 (its 100w) submersible heater that has an electronic thermostat that automatically maintains the water temp at 78degrees.
•I also have a 20g that runs the same model heater. Neither of these tanks will be running once I get my 55g setup and running properly.
My question is, do I need to run 2 heaters in the 55g? Would using both of the above heaters work for it? Or would it not be enough and I'd have to get 2 heaters at 150w- and should my heaters be automatic like I'm used to or are the manual heaters more appropriate for my 55g?
I know my thread is about filters but since you mentioned the heaters and I have a question about your reply, I still feel like this is staying on my topic.
