So my current dream tank is about to become a reality
. I am purchasing either a 75 or 90 gal
in the next month!! I have never had a canister filter before, so was looking for imput from people with more experience. It seems like the way to go. I have it narrowed down to the Eheim 2217 ($159) or Rena Filstar xp3 ($139).
Any major differences in ease of setup? They seem kinda intimidating.
How about the water current? I am doing FW
planted with schools of small tetras and I worry about them blowing all over the place.
Or do I actually need more current or a powerhead for a larger tank? Can this harm the plants?
Lastly, I was considering the Hydor inline 300W heater. I really like the idea of pumping warm water into the tank and avoiding a "hot spot" under a regular heater. Any experiences good or bad with these??
The rest of the tank:
Nova Extreme t5HO 4x54W with fan
2x10000K, 1x6500K, 1x actinic
Anything I'm missing??
