I have a Penguin 350B on my 30gal, but if I were to do it again, I'd go with an AquaClear. It's more CO2 friendly (no bio-wheels) and the combinations of media you can use is a lot broader.

maxwell1295 - What do you mean by it is mroe CO2 friendly??? How is that?


Also I would think that the Emporor 280 is more media friendly condisering you get a plastic cartrage that you can put any media that you want in that goes along with the typical foam and carbon filter. It has 2 slots.

The biowheels themselves tend to agitate (oxygenate) the water, causing your CO2 to be lost to the atmosphere. AC's don't do that.
