So on my 55 I have two HOB filters, a Aquatech 30-60 and a tetra whisper 60.
Now... keeping a budget in mind, I plan to tweak my stock a little, and will most likely be overstocked... so I'm sitting here wondering if I should replace those two filters with AC 70's. I could probably swing the upgrade (including selling mine) for around $100.
Are the AC's quieter than most HOB?
Would the AC70's be a significant upgrade?
Would they actually reduce electric usage? (more efficient at 6W? I can't find specs on others) - FOUND, each are currently 9W, so it'd be 2/3's of the power I use now
Would just adding a canister be better, and if so what would be best choice?
