Hello, I will be setting up a 75 gallon cichlid tank in the future. I have narrowed down a few filter choices below. Note that the filter will be used with a Hydor external inline heater. The tank will be viewable from both sides, so HOB
filters are out of the question even though I do love my AQ that I have right now. If you could please recommend which would be best as well as the size and if I should run 1 or 2 of those filters at that particular size. Here is what I have narrowed it down to. Thanks!!
1. Hydor Proffessional cansister filter (I like that it will for sure work with the Hydor external inline heater)
2. Penn Plax Cascade canister filter (I like the price, but have heard they aren't very energy efficient)
3. API Filstar canister filter (Have heard many good things about these filters)
4. SunSun canister filter (I LOVE the price, but is it too good to be true?)
Again, I will be using the Hydor external heater (300w) so the filter hose size needs to be 5/8". I'm not sure what size hoses these filters run except for the Hydor. Also, please recommend the particular filter size I should get as well as if I should run 2 of those filters. Thanks!!
