A lot of people use Aquaclears, I personally use marineland filters.

I'd recommend an aquaclear 50 for that tank. And a 70 if you want messy fish lol

They really are great filters, I;ve been running them over 10 years and the filter media is very easy to change out.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I setup my first tank 2 weeks ago! 29 gallon, and put in the eheim 2213 that is virtually silent.

With the quick disconnect adapters (that come with) changing filter media has been a breeze.

The only issue really is the water flow since I am heavily planting my tank with a large hardscape, so I bought a koralia nano 425 powerhead thats on the way!

The eheim cost me 85 bucks, and the powerhead cost 30.

I just bought an aquaclear 50 for my 29. I love it. You can control the water flow. And supposedly if you turn the water flow down, 50% of the water gets circulated through the filter many times. The only issue is its kind if loud. It doesn't buzz or hum but the water coming out of It makes substantial noise. So if its in your bedroom and you have problems sleeping if its not quiet that's something to think about. It cost me about 40$ with tax

If you raise the water level, the noise should be quieter

Yeah, but where the water comes out is all the way up near the trim. And I like to keep the water an inch below the trim

If you get tired of the noise, just raise the water level some

Agreed, the Aqua Clear 50 is the perfect size filter for a 29g and 2 is even better if you have messy stock like goldfish.
