Which Aquaclear to get.
 
OK I'm adding a Aquaclear but have not figured if it should be a AC20 or AC30.

It's going on a 29 gallon tank.

Sorry ment AC30 OR AC50

I run an AC70 on a 25g. It's a lot of flow, but not too much, and I could always turn the flow down (but I don't need to).

On a 29 I'd go to an aquaclear 50 at least, maybe a 70.

I agree completely. Go with a 50 or 70, and if necessary either reduce the flow using the tab at the top or use a filter baffle to deflect the outflow.

i agree with everyone else go ac50 or ac70. i had 1 ac50 on a 20g it was perfect for that tank

i have a 20g tall and i have the aqua clear 50 on it...

i agree with everyone else here, get either a 50 or a 70

Would you not consider the new fluval Hobson, which are unofficially dubbed the aqua clear v2.0's?

zzrguy 11-28-2012 01:39 PM

Can't find any on Long Island to look at.
Was took it just a sexxier case around a Aquaclear everything inside is the same.

I AC 50 or AC 70 would work great (I have a AC 50 on a 10 gal-filters great).

I also have a Fluval C4 and that's a nice HOB filter. Separate media compartments so you can customize your filtration.

Always get at least the next size up aquaclear from the size of your tank. For example with a 10 gal you get at least an AC20, 20 gal at least AC30, etc... My 5.5 gal has an AC20 but I think an AC30 would be fine, too. Over-filtration doesn't exist unless your livestock like things mucky or with zero flow.

talontsiawd 11-28-2012 05:34 PM

I would do at least a 50. I was using a 20 and a 50 on my 29 gallon way back and it was far from too much flow.

secuono 11-28-2012 05:46 PM

The bigger the better. At least a 50.

zzrguy 11-29-2012 10:10 PM

The AC70 seem so big for this tank.

I hopen to pick it up tomorrow. Im going with the AC50.
