I want to upgrade from my current tank, a 15 gallon, to a Mr Aqua 17.4 (which is pretty much the same dimensions as my current tank or Mr Aqua 33.6 gallon tank. It still is 24" but it gives more depth which I want! This would mean I would need to spend much more money for equipment. Also would paintball CO2 even be worth it on this?
What filter would be better if I do get the 33? The 2217 classic? Also what should I do as far as lights? I want medium light (maybe med-high) would the best lights to use be a DIY led light with CREE leds? I think that DIY leds would be cheaper to buy/run than a 4xT5HO. The T5HO I have isn't that great.
