So In a few weeks I'll be setting up my first planted tank, a 55 gallon. Its going to be a big project for me...
I dont have a filter at this time, and was thinking it would be best to go with a cannister filter...
But the prices between the various styles really varies. In general, i think one gets what one pays for.
but I am really confused as to the huge difference between prices.
I'm looking at an eheim cannister and Marine land HOT pro magnum with biowheel.
Both will work for a 55 gallon tank, but the EHEIM is waaay more expensive, as of course was the comparable fluval.
I think I am going to end up with the EHEIM, but.. would the Marine land HOT with the biowheel not handle the load of a heavily planted tank with 15-20 fish....(Not gold fish. just regular fish)?
I hope someone can help me. they have comparable GFR's etc.
