Hi! I have been browsing through other threads and forums regarding 75g Low-Tech tanks, and now am down to my final Filtration descision. I have a few options I am looking at and am just not sure which route would be the best for me.
I have hardy plants that will do fine in a River Style tank. I have fish that appreciate highly oxygenated water with fast flow and constant ripples at the surface. I want to have 2 filtration systems, one on either side of the tank for optimum flow. I want something that will be cost effective over time not requiring constant replacement parts or continuous sponge change-outs.
Here's what I am looking at: around 700gph which averages moving the water 10'xs an hour.
1 Rena Filstar XP4 paired with 1 Hagen Fluval AquaClear Powerhead 70
~OR~
1 AquaClear 110 Power Filter paired with 1 Rena Filstar XP3
~OR~
1 AquaClear 110 Power Filter paired with Hagen Fluval AquaClear Powerhead 70
~OR~
2 AquaClear 110 Power Filter
~OR~
AquaClear ProFlex sump Model 2 paired with a powerhead


All suggestions will be greatly helpful! Thank you!!!!

I use a fx5 in a tank larger than this and it moves water like a son of a b**** no experience with any other makers of canisters though
LOL! Thanks ;) I had concidered an fx5 but then decided to have two filters instead of one boss hog LOL!
