Should be perfect. Generally you want 4 to 8 times turnover for a planted tank. Much more then that and your plants will take a bit of a beating. Much less and you end up with deadspots. General rule is you take the advertised gallons per hour of any canister filter and divide by half to get real life numbers. You should be happy with the fx4.I have a water box 72 gallons, waiting to be filles and planted is the fluval fx4 enough
Why? Whats the advantage of this over the FX4?Yes, the FX4 will provide ample flow. But I recommend you a better option. Get a cheaper canister filter and buy a powerful inline pump. Hook up the pump to the outlet and never use the built in water pump, just use the canister and let the inline pump move the water. I wish someone gave me this idea two years ago.
I actually ran a 68g tank this way and would recommend it also.Why? Whats the advantage of this over the FX4?
It will be cheaper, you can get the pump as powerful as you want, and these pumps usually have controller where you can adjust the flow speed.Why? Whats the advantage of this over the FX4?
