Good filter for a 55 gal??
DrsFosterSmith.com has this: Power Filter: Bio System Power Filter & Surface Skimmer from Drs. Foster and Smith HOB filter on sale right now ($30 for a 55 gal), I was wondering if it looked like junk or not to anyone, also what is a built in surface skimmer???
When it comes to a 55 gallon get two filters. Trust me. One filter will result in decent flow in one half of the tank and no flow in the other. So one side looks clean, the other gets lots of settled out detritus. I'd get a pair of the model 35's myself.
Everyone who posted has good points. I.m currently running marineland biowhrrl and i must say half of my 50g is very still, well a dead zone. They are very noisy with a water fall sound. My marineland c-220 canister filters w/ 0 bypass quit running and are in the shop, marineland is sending replacemants. Even tho they broke i still would purchase them again. They keep water sparkling clean and have baskets for any needed filter madia and they truly have 0 bypass all water gets filtered. The co ml replaces parts at no charge so i feel safe enough.Oh you can't hear them running.

(PS) I very much like the sponge filters for their simplicity, but Properly sized sponge filters take up considerable room in each corner of my tanks and bristlenose ,along with White spot pleco are nibbling little holes in them They also affect the aesthetics. I may go back to the two Emperors at some point.
