Question Fluval 103 filter

Will a fluval 103 filter be good for a 60ltr tank?

I'm sure it was in its day. They are on 06 models now so that's a few generations back. Finding parts might be a challenge if something goes wrong. I wouldn't spend more than $25.

if it's only £18 …even if it's not what you originally wanted
it's good for a spare for another tank.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Does 100 GPH so yes it should do quite well.
