need equipment recommendation for my new 30g!

Hey all! I've had a 10g hex all the time and I'm moving up to a 30g standard size! I need some filter recommendations for it! HOB or canister is fine. the 10g hex has a betta and about a dozen ghost shrimp! Anything else anyone wants to add so I don't forget?

I have an AC 70 on my 36 and an AC50 on my 29. Both filters do a great job.

All the way with Rich. I run an AC50 on my 29, and an AC 20 on my QT 15.

Never had a problem. Very Quiet, Easy to clean, And Cheap!

You could go with a Rena XP1 cannister if you want to spend the money. Or you could go with all the suggestions above and get an Aquaclear HOB. I have an AC on every one of my tanks. I have an AC50 on my 29g and you could go with that or the 70 for your 30g.

A good heater and a good thermometer!

And a water test kit if you don't have one.

Magnums are generally bypassed for better cannisters (Rena, Fluval and Eheim). I've heard of people who like them, but most people I talk to don't.
