I found this canister at Big Al's while browsing around, it's a bit cheaper than the 2028...but rated for tanks up to 250g, would this be a good choice for a 75g? I don't think it will be too much since some of you have XP 3'z on a 29g, and a 2028 on a 30g...?

It is a bit too much Raul. Those canisters are the size of Shop Vacs! I believe they hold several liters of media.

12liters to be prescise...but I don't want to have two XP's...and there's only $20 difference if I get the 2250, then getting an XP3 and XP2; but of course a big difference in quality and flow rate. Plus, I could use an inline reactor, rather than an outline...

Well, this is a heavily planted tank...but how do you people conceal your spraybars? Do you position them on the back pane, all the way down...but pointing the flow 45-90degrees upward? :? Won't the flow blow your plants away?

:arrow: Ace, while your on the good is JBL aquabasis?
