Is a canister filter too much?
I am setting up another tank I said I was going to wait but I could not. It's winter and we have very little snow so shrimp keep me busy when I can't snowboard.
So anyways it's a 10gal I am going to be using Akadama as my substrate. I am going to have moss and Dwarf sag, Penny wort, and other random plants but it's not a planted thank this is for the shrimp mainly.
So what kind of filter? I have a few laying around. I have a eheim 2215, in the garage with have a whisper HOB filter for a 20gal, a few power heads, and sponge filter. So what to do? Would the Eheim be over kill?
I could move the Eheim to my planted 20gal long. Then move the aqua clear 30 to the 10 gal? I just feel like a canister filter is over kill when you have fast growing plants and only shrimp. My tanks nitrates are so low they don't read on my test chart.
