I am sloooowly starting the process of setting up a new tank. This will be my first, so beginner, freshwater fish will be the inhabitants. I bought a 20 gal
tank and stand at a yard sale. It came with a hood and light, but no filter. So, what type of filter should I look at? I'm not made of money, but I want to look at better and best solutions, not just good solutions. I only want to do it once.
I like the idea of live plants, but I have not researched that yet. Does it change the filter requirements? Anything else that guides filter choice?
Thanks for any suggestions.
