Aqueon of Fluval filtration?
I am new to fish keeping and have purchased a 75g tank. When looking at filter I was thinking about either buy two of these for the tankFor Aquariums up to 90 gallons Aqueon QuietFlow 55/75
400 GPH. Or just one these canister filters Fluval 06 406 For Aquariums up to 100 gallons
383 GPH. Now the Aqueon filters together are still about $100 cheaper but I was not sure if they were better in tandem. Any advise you can give to this noob would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.:cheers:
The first question that has to be answered when considering a filter is, what fish are intended for the tank? Fish have differing needs with respect to water current, and the filter is the easiest way to handle this. Also, some fish need more filtration than others. Live plants is another important consideration, as with plants you want less filtration right from the start.
Water current is obviously connected to the filter, so this too should be minimal unless you have fish requiring a current. Plants are best in less flow--if the plants are swaying, the current is too strong. Only those right next to the filter outflow should move.
