Yesterday I got a used 44 gallon corner tank - WHOOP WHOOP - I am so excited. I have wanted one for over 15 years. I cleaned it and redid the silicone this morning and due to location would like to consider a canister filter. However - I have never had one before - only the HOBs. I need help as I don't know the first thing about a canister and don't have a lot of money to spend on one.
I'd love to have some easy, practical advice or where to go to find it. I don't have a lot of confidence in the LFS
or Petco - plus they are both 90+ miles away so not a simple task.
I have had aquariums for over 30 years - but didn't really *get into* them till the last few. This will make #8 in my house. (my kids think I have gone off the deep end!) I have a 5.5 hospital tank, a 6.5 guppy tank, a 20 high, 20 long, 20 hex, 29 cichlid (9 juvenile africans), this upcoming 44 corner and a 72 bow. All freshwater.
