What filter/pump or a 240 litre / 50 gal tank..?

Hello,

I have a new tank coming soon whic is roughly 240 litre, can anybody advise what size pump/filter I would need..?

I'm in the uk, so if anyone has any links to decent uk suppliers that would be most helpful..!

thanks in advance

Eheim Classic 2213.

They can be had for a shade over 40 quid online.

Bargain.

Marineland Biowheel 280 is a nice one.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Eheim Thermofilter.

Basically a pro II with a heater in it.

Twice the price of the classic series but probably worth it.
