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

Welcome to the site!!!!! Have you decided what kind of filter you want, like hang on the back or canister?

Eheim Classic 2213.

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

Bargain.

Marineland Biowheel 280 is a nice one.

Hi,

thanks for suugestions so far.. in answer to redlessi's question - i want an external filter (to save room in the tank) but I would also like it to have a heater built in or attached) i know the eheim can do this, are they the best..?

any other recommendations...?

thanks

Eheim are among the very best, without a doubt.

I cant seem to find any combined heater/filters by eheim, does anybody know of any that I can ask the LFS for..?

thanks

Eheim Thermofilter.

Basically a pro II with a heater in it.

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