Planning Ahead

Okay so here's the deal. I currently have a 36G Bow front tank. I know for a fact that in the future I am going to want to upgrade to a larger tank. I currently am leaning towards the 72G Bow front but I'm really not sure yet and we're talking a while down the road.

Anyway, on my 36G bow I am currently running an Aqueon Quietflow 30 and a Marineland Biowheel 150. They seem to be doing a good job keeping the tank looking very nice. Now, as I said, eventually I want to upgrade and I like to plan ahead. Obviously, I can't get a filter rated for a 72G tank and hook it up to this. Or can I?

I guess what I'm getting at is, can I eventually trade out one of my current filters with something a bit more powerful that I could eventually use to seed a larger tank. Obviously I would need another filter when I get the new tank, but this is just something to start with.

For right now it would need to be a HOB filter. I was thinking either an Aquaclear or Fluval C4. Is that too much for my tank?

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

When you are closer to getting the new tank purchase your filter, and place the media from the new filter in your present tank in a media bag for a few weeks.
