tank is cycling with zebra danios and some anubis...
So if you're cycling already, did you make up your mind on the filter? I was going to give my bump to the Penn Plax canisters. I'm running a 1000 on my 55g tank. It's super quiet, easy to clean, and seems to get the job done all around.
If you're just using a stop gap before you make up your mind, that'd be my pick, though with a 100g I'd go up to the 1200 or 1500.
Not particularly. I know these guys are the result of some heavy breeding and are likely more inbred than is best. However, I got them at an LFS that I know and trust and they looked to be in good shape when I purchased them. I've had them going on 6 months now and they seem happy and growing. I've had no health issues.
I think a lot of it is about what sort of stock you get to begin with. If they're well taken care of from start to finish you're less likely to have issues.
I have two 40 watt bulbs for my 100 gallon. thats less than 1 watt per gallon. will anubis and wisteria survive in this?
Yes. The Anubias prefers shade, it does well with other plants (like the Wisteria) above it. Wisteria needs light, but it will grow--it does for me with similar light. Regular trimming once every week or two weeks (depends on conditions) will keep it nice, otherwise it grows across the surface and lower leaves fall off.
