Has anyone ever tried out a Cascade brand canister filter? I used to use their HOB filters all the time and they were always good and very silent. Their canister filters are pretty reasonably priced

Filters and planted tanks

So I was just wondering... What is everybody's preferred filter setup on a planted tank and what looks most pleasing to the eye?

Canister, HOB, etc?

Oh yeah. I'd enjoy having smaller schooling fish anyways. They would make the tank seem huge. I will probably do Amano shrimp. And yeah, no Gouramis, Plecos, or Algae eaters, though.

I think I'm actually gonna invest in a larger sized Sun Sun canister filter. Probably the HW-303B filter with built in UV lamp.
