    Question 75 gallon Filters


    0 Not allowed!
    I am in the process of building a 75 gallon Tetra tank soon. I have had many tanks in the past 30 years and am thinking in going a different direction with filters. I am considering a pair of Titan 110 HOB filters. I have had quite a few HOB filters (Aqua Clear) in the past usually with no problems on smaller tanks. These Titan 110s will move a lot of water. They will turn the tank over 4 times per hour. A pair will do 900 GPH. Another thing is the easy maintenance of them. Being 78 years young making thing easy is a must. I usually use canister filters on this size tank and a few of my past tanks had sumps. Need your feedback on this system with HOB filters.

    Thanks Bill

    Well I spelled the name wrong my mistake. The correct name is Tidal 110 made by Seachem. There specs are impressive and looking at them on youtube they look quality
    and east to maintain. SORRY about the mistake.

    I've seen Titan aquarium heaters, but not filters. Would you be thinking of Tidal??

    If so, I've been very pleased with mine. I have the Tidal 55 on a 25g tank and the Tidal 75 on my 40g. I actually think 2 Tidal 110's would be too much on on a 75g tetra tank. My Tidal 75 is really powerful on the 40g tank. Maybe one larger and one smaller, or even 2 of the mid-size would be plenty.

    Welcome to the forum!
    I see you are from Burson.:)
    I grew up in San Andreas-- 18 years. Now live in Elk Grove.

    Anyways, the Tidal is a great HOB, cant go wrong with this filter.

    Thanks Sued; I will look at two maybe less GPH. Think they will do what I would like done. I have read nothing but good reports on those who are using them and well liked
    and ease of use and maintaining. Another thing I like about them is the large media basket room for more. Glad you like yours. Thanks again

    I have the Tidal 75 and am very impressed with it (Thank you Sue for reassuring me), it is so easy to maintain and has good flow. Smart design and good price too.

    My tidal is on a 75 gallon goldfish tank. I have two other filters an Aqueon Quite flow 75 and an Eheim 2217. The Tidal is the easiest to maintain of the 3, I don't have to drip water or use a bucket to carry the media over to rinse it. Yes the tank is currently overkill with filtration but with goldfish and dojos you can't have enough (same goes with plecos). I am planning on pulling the Aqueon off one of these days...

    The flow is much more adjustable than the Aquaclear fliters, too. And that leveler to help the filter sit properly is such an improvement - it's a screw that doesn't fall out. No priming, either, when you start it back up after a water change.

    Make sure to check around when ordering as you may find some deals. I just noticed they now have a Tidal 35 which is great for say a 10 or 20g tank. When I first got mine there was only the 55, 75, and 110.
