Filtration in a breeder
I'm looking for ideas on filter setups for a 40 G breeder that will be heavily planted.
I have a Aqua Clear 30 power head and a little Aqueon 10 (from orig 15g kit) that I was going to use (both) but it seems silly to have two pumps sitting up there churning away.
Also, I'd like to run the flow of the pump lengthwise to simulate a current which my cherry barbs seem to love. How can this be done with a proper hood. The only cover I could find so far for the breeder size tank is a flat glass with a flexible rubber hinged door. How can you fit things through a glass cover without holes. Maybe there's holes - I haven't opened incase I need to take it back and get something else.
Does anyone mount power heads on the tank 'sides' instead of the backside, or do I need a different pump?
I don't have a lot of money to spend and I'd like to make what I have work if I can.
I welcome your suggestions
