New Filtration System Questions
I'm new here, but not new to aquariums - although I admit that I'm not into the fine, fine details of aquariums... I've had a 29 gallon freshwater aquarium for about 8 years now. I have an Eclipse filtration system that uses a bio wheel with carbon cartridges. Lately, I have spent too much time maintaining the filtration system due to noise, clogs, bio-wheel problems or other problems. In addition, I'm not happy with the level of filtration (cloudy water...).
My tank right now is pretty bare (3 fish no plants), but I would like to change that by adding some plants along with getting a proper mixture of fish.
I've been reading about canister filters. Price is not a big issue, so I'm considering an Eheim 2026/2126 (w/heater). The question I'm looking for help with is whether I need any additional filtration, powerheads or a bio-wheel unit (ugh...). Any advice on any additional equipment that I should consider would be appreciated.
