I want to set up a shrimp only tank, with different kind of species from ghosts to cherries etc and I was thinking of getting a fluval 101 canister filter.
The only reason I would prefer a canister is that that way the tank can be closer to the wall and take less space in the room.
I am looking at getting a 20" long tank, 30*12*12.
It will also have some low light plants, like jave ferns, no co2, and problably just a 20w lightbulb or something.
Basically growing plants is not the main objective.
My only concern with thefilter is if it isnt overkill for such tank?
Will it create too much current in the tank?
Do the shrimp prefer a strong current of water or a more calm one?
Anyway please feel free to sugest any other kind of filters.
