Last month I posted about getting a 15 gallon high tank, and asked about filter options. Thanks to Toirtis, grimlock3000 and everyone who responded.
I'm now getting a 20 gallon high. I didn't get the 15, but I did get a 10 gallon QT
-hospital tank, and I got the AquaClear filter to go with that tank.
So, what filter recommendations do you have for the 20 high? I'm going to add low-light plants -- dwarf sag, crypts, java moss, and anubias (although the hatchery rarely has anubias, so I may have to wait to put that plant in.) I don't want CO2
. I already have driftwood soaking in a bucket and ready to go.
I'm thinking of 2 schools of tetras, or one school and some long-fin rosy barbs. The hatchery has lots of fish that are not too common also, so I don't know what I'll come home with yet! But I probably won't get the fish until next month.
I'm thinking of a canister filter this time. I've always like the idea of one, but I wonder if they would be too strong for a 20 gallon tank. From browsing the web, I like the Eheim Ecco series. Would the smallest one (the 2231, I think) be ok for the tank or should I just stick with an HOB
