Wet/dry for a turtle/fish tank?
Hello, I'm a bit over my head on this one. I currently have two turtles w/ African cichlids in two separate tanks. However they are outgrowing their tanks and want to get a 200ish gallon tank. Thinking of either a 72x24x31 or a 72x24x25 rectangular tank. I really like the idea of a wet/dry just because I can hide all tubing/heater and I can have the tank all the way against the wall to save a bit of space. I will probably have 3 3" cichlids in the tank w/ my two turtles. Both turtles are aquatic and only one requires basking. She will have a basking area above the tank in the custom canopy I'm going to have made. I've been reading about head height with these types of filters and I Just don't understand them. From my understanding You want the return head high enough that in the event of a power outage you don't over flow the bottom tank. In your opinions do you feel a wet dry will be the best way for me to go to achieve my goals? Can you educate me on head height and perhaps even recommend a good wet/dry brand to research? I 've found so many different ones out there It makes my head spin.
