Filter for Planted Tank
I decided to convert my 10g into a plant-only tank. I removed my neon tetras from the tank and now I am wondering what to do in regards to my filter.
Now I only have RCS, snails (MTS, ramshorm, pond and others) and a lot of java moss along with a variety of plants. Some anubias and some java fern taken from my main tank.
But I really want to switch out my current filter, a penguin 150. It has been in use for less than 4 months and it is already starting to rattle. And it's been a nuisance with the noise when I sleep. I always hear that "there is never too much filtration", but what is the case with a shrimp tank?
What kind of filter would I get that be sufficient, cheap and quiet?
I currently have play sand in the tank, but I intend to switch it out to blue gravel or pfs because play sand is just too troublesome.
