[APD] filtration goals
We spent Saturday in SF and went to Aqua Forest Aquarium. very nice
shop with tons of ADA accessories. in looking around and talking to
the owner(?) I think that maybe I don't have enough filtration for my
55g tank. They suggested more bio filtration ceramic things, so I
bought some to add. I bought a Fluval 204 when I set up the tank,
thinking that a planted tank would need less filtration than a tank of
fish. the folks in SF suggest that more filtration is better. Can
anyone comment on appropriate canister filters for a 55g tank?
Also, while there, I was impressed with the ADA lights hanging over
the all glass tanks. Very nice. However, I'm not really interested
in having a frame with the lights hanging. I did like a silver Al tube
that held 2 T5 bulbs. It was supported a few inches above the tank
with clear plastic legs. I liked that design better. I was glad to
see a completely grown up tank with 2 T5 bulbs. I need to work on all
my conditions to get the algae situation taken care of.
I did buy a glass outflow tube to replace the grey plastic one that
came with the Fluval. And a glass CO2 indicator. I have a feeling
I'll be back later for more stuff.
