I have not bought my filter yet for my 75 gallon oceanic. I went to my local fish store and they recommended a few good choices.

Option 1 - 1 Cascade 1500 - their price = $189.00 I have searched the net and found a few for under 130.

Option 2 - 2 AquaClear 110 Filters - their price = $59.00 ea. I have searched the net and found an average price of $60.


What is your recommendation in these 2 filters?

I have an AquaClear 50 on a tank at the fire station on a 30 gallon tank and the water is more clear than it has been in years. Also, the PH is staying @ 7.0, where before you had to play with the PH balance chems.

Let me know, thanks for your help.

Well it matters, canisters are much more expensive but are very good. Power filters are cheaper but arent as good. But then again power filters are sufficiant for most tanks.

To be honest and IMHO, both. As for prices, CHECK HERE first. I think it will make the decision a little easier. If you go with one filter, get the canister. More circulation, more filtration options and overall better for that size tank.
