I was thinking maybe 2 filter, 1 would be an internal filter, and the other probably the Emperor bio-wheel. (280 or 400?). I am gonna add a good powerhead aswell.
Id like some suggestions before I start setting it up
I would look at the Aquaclear 110 or Emperor 400 for this tank.
Of the two,,I would lean towards the Aquaclear simply cause it's easier to service and a bit quieter.
Have used Emperor filter's for years as well, and they too are excellent filter's but a bit more tedious to service and filter media choices are a bit more limited .
