- - Filter suggestions? (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/beginner-freshwater-aquarium/filter-suggestions-23880/)
I just bought a 180 gal tank off of craigs list.
I'm going freshwater. What type of filter, heater, and air pump should i get? The front is glass and the 4 other sides are this plastic laminate type of material. The back is about 1" inch thick. So hanging filter is out of the question?
Personally, I would have the back drilled and an overflow built for it, then run either a wet/dry or a sump and keep the heaters(2- 300w) in there.
Which of these is the best bang for my buck?

I'd go with a canister filter myself. Sumps are nice but unless you're going to have a lot of cichlids its probably unnecessary.
