Filter For Tank

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have a 2.5 foot planted tank that I want to have a Betta sorority in but I'm struggling with what filter might be best for it? I did have a sponge filter in there and it just wasn't getting the job done but the spare Eheim filter I have seems to be way too strong - even when I direct it against the glass to try and reduce the flow (though it is doing the job of filtering well).

Is there a better filter out there or would two sponge filters do the job?

What size sponge filter did you have in there and how turned up did you have?

I have a bunch of two footers for grow outs, and all have a large sponge filter in them turned up to max bubble rate - seems to be doing the job :)

But if you only have smaller sponge filters, then yes, multiple will work for you.

I've forgotten which model number it is but it was the biggest one they had - just maybe not big enough, I guess? I'll have a hunt for a bigger one and see how I go with that now that I know it should do the trick.

Cheers, Brenton. :)
