My boyfriend and I have a shubunkin goldfish named Iso. (Pronounced ice-o) He is set up in a 10g tank with a great hob
filter and live plants. Very temporary living arrangements. We know it's way too small for him.
Please don't panic, tomorrow we are getting a 55 gallon tank. He is still quite small, but we are upgrading now. Petco has their $1 per gallon sale starting tomorrow! We know that this is only the tank. We are getting a hood, air pump, airstones, live plants, rocks, etc.
So, we need some expert advice though...
What would be the best hob
filter for our new 55g tank?
I know a lot of people have said two filters are better than one. We are thinking of putting our current filter on one side of the tank just to help with water circulation. We want the new filter to at least be 55/550 though. We definitely have decided on a hob
filter. We don't want a canister or under gravel.
Please ask any questions you have.
Also, our budget for the new tank, stand, accessories, and everything else is around $500. With the tank being on sale, we can kind of splurge on the best for our fish buddy.
Recommendations on air pumps, hoods, and plants are always welcomed too. We've done a lot of research, but it's always nice to know more.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
