Need a canister for 50 gallon tank
Looking through all the threads regaring filters, I seem to find most people favor the canisters (especially in planted tanks like I will have), but can't find a clear favorite. I guess I was leaning towards an Eheim 2217 because of the $130 price I found. Is that a good choice, or can I do better with something else for around the price or cheaper?
The eheims are going to be your best choice provided you don't try to overstock your tank. If you are going planted I am going to assume that you are not doing african or big cichlids. If smaller fish are in this tank's future, then you could probably be fine with a 2215 if price is a concern.
Where did you find the 2217? I'm currently looking at getting a 2215 and was just curious to see where the cheapest place to find them was?
I have a rena xp3 on my 55gal planted tank. It's been a good filter. It does leak a little sometimes, but it is about 5 years old now.
That is an insanely good price. The 2217 is usually over $150. MSRP is $170 I think.
