    filter choices

    I have a 30 long aquarium. I got this tank off craigslist and it came with a broken Tetra EX70. The main tube was broken but I fixed it with some aquarium silicone. This morning the tube broke again but now its unfixable. I have an old aqueon 20 or 30 on it right now, but the impeller is busted on it and it stops periodically (Another Craigslist investment lol). The only fish in the tank is a GSP. I cant decide, I am thinking in investing in either a Aquaclear 50 or 70 or a Penguin 350B. Any suggestions?

    Like the aquaclears myself. Easy to maintain and easy to customize media. But in fairness have never used a penquin.

    Ive used both..i prefer the aquaclear simply b/c i find them much quieter than the penguins IMO (plus I like the way they are set up).

    okay. thanks for the feedback. I will probably go with the aquaclear 70 since I know my little guy is very messy.

    the ac 70 is fine but if you want cleaning power you might want to got with a zoomed mini canister or a small fluval
