big external filter on a small tank?
I have a 6 gallon tank and looking to upgrade to an external filter. 1) to get rid of the ugly HOB 2) to be able to really be able to adjust my flow preciously 3) HOB makes me have to put my ADA light on either side of it 4) it seems like my circulation isn't "ideal" but that's me being a perfectionist 5) able to add a tad more bio-load to the tank
Anyways, I've been looking at Eheim Ultra 2071 for scaling purposes (might get a 20 gallon sooner or later). Could having such a big external filter hurt in anyway to a small tank?
I personally can only see one flaw which is maybe too much flow-rate and I can't adjust it but I've heard most canisters can from the inlet tube.
