Fluval FX5 vs. Ehiem 2660 vs ??
Hello folks. Post number 1.
Seems the thought is that with a planted discus tank a cannister filter is the way to go.
Looking at the new FX5 or the Ehiem 2660 or ??
Both have features that I consider important. And some that I question.
The FX5 has a water change valve but that would not be hard to rig up on a Ehiem return line with a couple ball valves and a tee. The Ehiem has a larger intake hose diameter.
The Ehiem has a choice of media. What would you folks sugguest for media for a planted Discus thank ?
Given a choice what would you purchase ? Perhaps there is another brand I am overlooking ?
Still learning with a long way to go.
Thanks for your time and paitence.
