I am new to the aquarium hobby and I currently have a 15 gallon eclipse tank and hood. I really like the look of a 20 gallon long tank and I am wondering if it is necessary to run a canister filter or will a penguin biowheel be plenty for this size tank. This is going to be a heavily planted tank with a JBJ Formosa SS-JD2 65 watt light and a pressurized CO2 system.
If a canister filter would be best please give me your recommendations. The following is a list of the ones I have read about on this forum:
1) FilStar XP1
2) Fluval MSF 104
3) Eheim ECCO 2231
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.
