I'm upgrading to a much bigger African tank in my room.
The tank will be either a 4foot (220-275L), or a 5foot (395L).
I have been shopping around a bit online and in store to get an idea of what hardware I should incorporate.
In terms of Filtration I have decided I will go external, but is there such thing as having a too good filter for your tank? I have been looking at the aquaone (27000UVC) which is recommended for 400-700L and has 2700lp/h with 5w UV
filter, and the Fluval 406 1450lp/h which is recommended for 400L. If I went a four foot tank would these both be overkill?
My other big question is in regards too lighting.
I was initially looking at T5's, but have decided that in the long term LED
's are just so much more efficient and cheaper. But TBH I have no idea what kind of LED
's I would need as I have only ever had bulbs before. As it is a African Cichlid tank, do I need all three spectrum's? If so what wattage and ratio?
