External Filters

I currently have a 100 gallon tank with Cascade 1200 canaster filter that pushes 315 gph and a UGF. I will soon be removing the UGF and adding some other means of filtration. I don't want to add anything the hangs of the back or visible when looking at the tank. The Cascade is quit and runs great. I am thinking about getting another but not sure. It's recommended to have the tank turn over at least 6 time an hour. so i will need something that pushes at least 300 gph.

What external filter would you recommend.

Than your only option is another canister filter (more expensive). A HOB power filter would really be a good route because you would combine both types of filtering. But if you must good options would be a filstar xp3 or a fluval 404. If you are willing to pay more look at the powerful eheims.

i think that you should just make a hudge wet/dry filter they are inexpensive and very good filtration. i whould recomend a 40 breeder to make it out of. the only things that will relly cost you are the sub pump and bio balls.here are some plans i found they might be for s/w but it will also work for f/w just cut and paste it

it's better to be lucky than good ±
