I just purchased a 60 gallon tank (couldn't pass up the good deal at Petsmart). I need a filter that is efficient and low maintenance. My husband will have to care for all the tanks in the summer (I travel abroad), and he has zero interest in this hobby (and pets in general). So, the only way to sell him on it is to have a setup that won't require much maintenance for 2 months. Which filter do you recommend?
Also, I plan on getting real plants for this tank. What kind of substrate is best? I'm only getting low maintenance, easy plants. No CO2
or root tabs.
