Hi,

I recently bought a 15g tall aquarium (20" long x 10" wide X 18" tall) with an eclipse 1 hood. I regret buying the hood and wish to change it now. I'm looking at getting a glass canopy and putting a 20" 1x40W CF strip light on top. I have mostly low light plants, but want the option to include more medium light plants later.

The tank is cycling right now, but I will be putting dwarf puffers in.

I'm looking for suggestions on what type of filters would be good. I don't think HOB will fit with the canopy, but I might be wrong? Should I go with a canister?

I've been considering an XP1, but it's a little costly. Is there another option, or should I save up?

Save up. :)

It'll be a good decision. You can go for Eheims, but they're pricier.

Also, did you get the 15G at a LFS? I can't seem to find any here! :(

I got it at a Big Al's near Vancouver. It was part of a set, Stand, Tank, Eclipse 1 for 199$ CDN (if I remember corrected).

no problem. For equipment and supplies, king ed is very cheap and the stock is plentiful but fish quality is so so. I got a bag of eco complete for 24.99 compare to 34.99 at big al. Bigals online pricing is different than the in store pricing usually it's cheaper on the website.
