    I was going to buy the EHEIM Professional Wet/Dry Canister, but I saw that my needed model leaked a lot, so I'm not going with the EHEIM Classic External Filter. What are your opinions on filters for 75g tanks? Filter tips/suggestions?

    there are many fans of the rena xp3 filters here. they are very good priced and great filters. i think they changed the name... ah yes its not the "FilStar XP L" i guess api bought them out. but they are good filters. i think pet solutions have them for about 120. and should be GREAT for a 75g tank

    eheims are really good filters with a strong biological filtration capacity, but their flow rate (and thus mechanical filtration) sucks badly. if you aren't planning on a heavy stocking but want very clear water then you might want to explore other options than the eheim.

    There's the wet/dry systems and the classics. Two different things.

    I like my classic. Simple to use, silent, energy efficient and allows me to stock with whatever. I also like the fact that almost any aquatics shops has the most essential spares in stock.

    But, when you get right down to it, a canister is a really simple thing that doesn't need to be fancy or expensive.

    So talldutchie, I'm thinking I should get the classic external canister for $150 since many people around the web like it. I saw that the EHEIM Wet/Dry Canister only offered biological filtration, while the classic offers the three-stage filtration. I'm going with the Classic for sure :)

    Thanks everyone. :)
