Wondering if it is practical to upgrade the filter system which comes with the Eclipse 12. I was considering an appropriate sized canister filter instead of the current biowheel setup. I think I could get better filtration and water quality by doing that but would like some advice from someone more knowledgeable than me (probably everyone on these forums!)

Is this practical?
Any suggestions?

Thank you.

I would add another filter to that tank.
An aqua clear HOB or a small Rena canister filter would work great.
I would leave the original filter there too unless it is not working properly.

Thanks for the quick reply.
What size would you recommend? I'd rather a canister, I think.

An xp1 or xp2 would be great for that tank.
