Is a Eheim pro III too much for a 65 gallon?
I just can't seem to pick a canister filter, I am stuck between these three:
Marineland's new c360 - 360gph
Eheim Pro II 2028 - 275 gph
Eheim Pro III 2080 - 450 gph
I have a planted tank, with a heavy fish load. (60 fish - 2 angels and the rest small schools)
What do I do?
I honestly wouldnt think that the Pro III would be a bad idea, especially with your heavy fish load, and with a large tank like that, you wouldnt have to worry about a bad current being throughout the tank.
60 fish yet the pics on the link dont seem too crowded.
Personally i think ehiem pros are poor- overpriced for what they are.
The success to a filter is that you set it up correcty for the job you want it to do.
If you want a planted aquarium then i would say you need a biological setup- a slow output full of good filter material with a recommended aquarium size 1.5 times your volume. couple this with regular water changes with high quality water- your plants will do the rest - then you cant go wrong.
If you dont want plants then you need all that wet and dry nonsense witha mecahnical filtration to take out all that detritus.
I love the eheim classic, range of sizes exteremly reliable easy to set up- and cheap ! what more do you want? lol :)
anyway thats my opinion i am sure people willl disagree with me on this- but its classic all the way for me- no nonsense does what it says on the tin!
I agree with the Eheim Classic. Why spend more on something called "Pro" when the classic is just as good. I have never heard anyone having a problem with the classic. As for size, if you have a good spray bar, you could get a rather large one but I don't think you really need it. The best way to decide is to get the next size up from what is recommended for the tank. If I would have known this before I would have AC 30 on my 10 gallon tanks and I think it would be a much better choice than the smaller AC20.
