Anyways, I searched my room for money and found $50.00 in an old birthday card! :D So I can now manage to scrounge up $132.00 and I need $142.00 for the 2217, so I can probably buy it sooner than I thought, so I have a few questions before I purchase it:
1. Someone mentioned that oxygen might be an issue here (and my dad mentioned that I may be getting a canister filter to his coworker who keeps fish and he said the same thing). It sounds like it actually won't be? I will have some live plants. I'd like some more opinions, because everyone thinks different!
2. I can't rememberthe second one :D I'll post when I do haha
Oxygen won't be a problem with live plants. If you think it may, you can just aim the output in a manner to disturb the surface more to allow more gas / water exchange. My tank's surface is still with my canister directed through a DIY spray that is completely submerged.
Someone mentioned that their canister makes noise sometimes, I found that the bio balls and ceramics rattled at times... Seeing as they are both useless and, even if they were useful, they are completely unnecessary I just tossed them and added more floss for better filtration.
