Thread: Filtration

  1. Default Filtration


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi guys and gals,
    I have just started a freshwater tank to go along with my saltwater tank. I wanted to make sure I have the right filtration on my 30g Tall freshwater tank. I am running a marineland 350 biowheel HOB filter. Will this be sufficient for my tank? Thanks for any advice.

    Not sure yet, I have some cheap fishes in there right now that are cycling it now for two weeks. I don't want anything that will exceed 5-6 inches. My plan is a community tank. I have plenty of live plants already.

    Well, There's really no way to determine if your filtration is adequate without knowing the bio-load it is going to be dealing with..

    If possible, Give us a sketch of your intentions wrt stocking.

    Obviously you are looking at schools of tetras/rasboras and the like since you don't have room for 5" fish anyway.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    I would like to have 1 main fish and the rest schooling fish. maybe a Ram or an Angel. I don't know whats really available, I have limited LFS where I live.

    Ok, Time for a road trip...

    Here's what you do:

    Grab your phone or anything else you can take notes with and head out to your local LFS.

    Leave your wallet IN THE CAR [This is more important than you may think :-P]

    Make a few laps in the LFS and see what appeals to you, Note the common names [Latin also if possible] and come back here and post that list.

    You can start googling that list while you wait for replies and we can help you sort out whats compatible [With each other and your tank] and what isn't.

    This way we don't offer our faves and you discover [Much mileage later] that none are available and you can offer ideas on what's appealing and locally available to you.

    It's win/win
