Hey, new to the forum. i was wondering if any one had any ideas about a good filtration system, what I'm going to have is a 75 Gallon Tall System II Aquarium and it's going to be only filled up only 8 inches from the top, because I have a few plants that'll bob in sort of a floating pot with just some of the roots in the water. I plan on putting a few small (like an inch) albine oscars an ideas would be appreciated. also an ideas on getting a cycle going.
Well I have a 75 gal filter in my 55 gal it works great! I would go with Marineland Penguin Bio-Wheel 300 i give it five stars. now small fish with an oscer? i dont no how thats going to end ?? good or bad
Hi and welcome aboard.:thumbsup:
I'd avoid oscars at all costs. One oscar will need 60 gallons alone.:blink: Being at monstrous size, your plants will be eaten and your filtration will be quite higher than average(almost overfiltration) as oscars tend to poop a lot.
I'd search for other fish instead of the oscar.:roll: Pls do post a list of your choice of fish so we can help you sort it out. A lot of fish are not suitable for community tanks and others will outgrow your 75 gallons tank.
For filtration system, you can go with external filters/canister filters.:thumbsup:
Of course, bad unless there is only one oscar in the tank with no plants and filtration should be sufficient.
Oscars are my pet hates if I were asked by others in general of what South American cichlids I like.:tongue:
Are you planning to use CO2 in the tank? I believe you will lose allot of the CO2 with the biowheel. It's usually better to use a canister filter.
Eddie, with oscars, no plants will survive in a tank.:blink: Unless the fish he plans to keep are plant-friendly, no can do.
