    Welcome to the AC! - Slaphppy7   

    Default Another Aquaclear 110 or 70?


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello All ,

    This weekend I'll be setting up a new 60g. Im planning on taking my AC 110 from my old set up. I love the aquaclear filters so I wanted to add another filter to get the benefits of multiple filtration. Should I get another 110 or just get a 70 and save some cash? Thank you.

    if you will have a 110 on there already I'd say just get a 70, thats 180g worth of filtration. Should be great

    +1 for what are you stocking?
    I personally prefer to run canisters on tanks over 30gal. HOBs don't provide as much volume and I would suggest maybe running a canister as well as the 110.
    Of course it may be entirely different overseas but here a 70 new would be about $80, when I could get a second hand canister (probably rated for 40g) for $50.

    If you want to stick with the HOB's, a 110 and a 70 will be just fine

    no such thing as too much bio-media, but if can't afford a 110, then just get the 70. Or even cheaper than the 70, a sponge filter.
