Newb needs Advice

I was just wondering which one of these aquariums would be better. One is the Current USA 24 gallon Aquapod with the 70watt HQI lights and a built in filter system. The other is A Finnex 22 gallon frameless aquarium with a protien skimmer and a built in wet/dry filter system. It has a 36X2 power compact lighting system.

Hmm. Tough choice.

I'd go with the 24 gallon with HQI lights myself. Only because the skimmer on the other probably isn't any good, and its 2 gallons larger. You can replace the filter media with some liverock or carbon or something and add your own, better skimmer.

Just my opinion, others may vary.

Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com!!!
I agree, go with the aquapod. With some modification to the filtration media it would be a good unit.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
