IME, Tetratech was a total waste ofmoney. I wound up givng away both of the ones I got with my tanks.

The Emporer would be a much better choice IMO.

To be honest, for HOB filters I won't likely buy anything but AquaClear. Never had a problem and the larger ones will give a ton of customizeability. SPonges, stars, rings, and whatever else you want to use. I will however buy at least one if not 2 sizes bigger than the recommended size just for the extra room to customize.

Thanks for that. The aquaclear is wut I am useing right now its a 50 gal but I also bought a extra on but its a 30gal. So I guess I'm going to go out and pick up another 50gal or maybe 70 but thanks for you advice....and I'm going to have a lot more questions lol
