Emperor 400 filter
How well would this filter suit a 75g tank? I could compliment with a 20-40 filter as well if need be too. If it can't though, would you recommend a filter capable of running the tank alone?
Also, I am thinking a 300w heater. Sound about right? I have two 75s in there and they are stopping the fish from freezing, but it hovers around 74 and I want the tank around 78. I let it get really cold in here on winter nights too so they'll need the additional strength.
Thanks for any feedback.

IMO you would need atleast 2*Emp 400s to do the job adequatly. If your having trouble maintaining temp with 1 300watt heater I would strongly suggest adding a second one to help do the job. Ad one at either end near the intake of the filter that will also help disperse the heat threwout the tank.150G SA Cichlids|100G Planted Community|50G Reef|20G Tanganyikan|10G Divided Bettas|10G Nano Fish

I've always over-heated my tanks. Less work on the heaters and less electricity :PDon't call it a comeback, I've been here for years.

I wouldn't go with a HOB filter for that size tank, I would go with a canister filter. Personally, I love the Rena Filstar XP3, you could filter that size tank with it solely. Many people also like Fluval filters.Originally Posted by i_am_511
