I am planning on purchasing a new aquarium this month and would like your opinions on filter options. I am looking at a 125 gallon for freshwater fish and plant life. I am currently looking at two Fluval 404 filters with 340 gpm each and a total of 680 gpm. I have also looked at the Rena Filstars. I would like a filter with easy local replacement media and such; both Fluval and Filstar are available locally. I have read here on AA about some of you having clogging problems with the Fluvals. I currently have a 75 gallon with an under gravel filter and an Aquaclear HOB
. I have not used a canister filter, so I do not have any personal experience to rely on. Also, I do not want any powerheads, due to previous usage caused major cooling problems here in the Arkansas summers. So, any input from you experienced canister filter folks?
