OK so i just set up my new tank. A 40breeder...
here is the problem. i took the filters from my old 29 (2 x 2213's). Should i get rid of the 2 2213's and upgrade to something bigger or just stick with what i have and supplement the flow with a powerhead? ti looks like I'm not getting enough flow with the setup i have now.
here is the second part of the issue...
the heater i have in there now is not big enough. it wont bring the water temp above 75. i want to upgrade to an inline, but is 200w going to be enough for a 40b? 200w is the only one i can find that will fit inline with a 2213. :confused:

thanks peoples... i guess im good with the filters then and i'm going to go ahead and order my inline heater. i wish i knew what the hell happened to my old heater... its less then 12 months old, and worked perfect on the old tank.i can actually touch the bottom part where the heating element is and it only gets warm, not hot. I do live in a colder climate (Philadelphia) but my heat has been on 70, so that is not the issue.
