....I'm using a Rena xP1 on my 10gal. It's overkill on top of overkill, but I'll have my CO2
reactor plumbed inline. Before that, I was running a Whisper 10...great filter, but I wanted a canister to run my reactor with. Personally, I wouldn't suggest getting anything with a biowheel, but it will depend on how heavily you're going to plant the tank and what type of plants you'll be using. For a heavily planted tank like mine, all that's needed is mechanical filtration.
Just a heads up, with the 2x13 retrofit kit, you won't need CO2
. I have a 1x36 and a 2x13 delux kit. I started with the 2x13 retrofit, but it was only enough to grow low-light plants.
