Which filter for 4.2g cube


10x10x10" cube low iron.

its slightly more then 4g, should I use the azoo palm/mignon 60 filter or an aquaclear 20?

Depend on how you are going to plant it, heavily planted i would not use any filter, just let the plants do the job. Equipment is always ugly on a tank, i bet a heavily planted low iron cube with just a hidden bubbler would look very nice.

If i should choose between the filters, i like Aquaclears hobs.

Aquaclear 20 would work. More media space and options.
