30 Gallon Tank - Canister Filter?
I have a 30 gallon (30" L X 15" W X 16" H) tank which currently holds 4 Yellow Lab cichlids. Now the problem I'm facing with this tank is that the water doesn't appear to be clear at all. It's quite murky. I was wondering if I should get a canister filter for this tank perhaps?
Also, since it's a 30 gallon tank I was thinking will a canister filter be too much for it? The lowest power canister available where I live is the Dolphin C-1000 canister filter which has a maximum flow rate of 900 L/H, I can however adjust the intake and outtake of the filter.
Will getting the canister filter be a better option in keeping tank water clearer? Please advice.
Thanks and Regards,
I personally don't have any experience with canister filters, but I have a 30 gallon and I just have 2 hang on the back filters, aquaclear 30 and 50. When I was only running the 30 my tank was a little murky but with two it's perfect. It's an idea to consider anyway.
Unfortunately AC filters are not available in India so I can't use them.
Can someone tell me if I can use the Dolphin C-1000 canister filter on my tank?
I would use a canister. They are superior to HOBs in every way.... you wont be disappointed.
How long has the tank been set up for?
The tank has been setup for well over 5 months now. Will the canister be too powerful for the tank as it has a flow rate of 900 L/H?
My canisters turn the water over close to 10 times an hour - I really don't think it's too much.
