Filter Suggestions??


So I just got a 12gallon long, and I'm looking for the perfect canister filter

Im looking for at least a 10x turnover rate so about 120gph. Most filters are rated without media so I was wondering if anyone knew a good filter rated at 120gph+ with media

Eheim 2211 is an awesome little canister filter. Very easy to clean and runs very quiet.

I have the Eheim 2222 which does about that gph. Had it for about 4 years now with no problems.

I second the 2211. Wonderful and quiet canister.
