Re: Big Eheim filters
I have Eheims on both of my tanks - but I've come to the conclusion that
cannister filters (regardless of type) are not worthwhile - sponge filters
are a better bet. My reasons are as follows:
o They're cheaper
o Although sponge filters don't usually provide as much biomedia
as cannisters, that's not altogether important in a
planted tank since plants take care of most of your amonia
o They're a damn sight easier to clean
o When they need cleaning, they look it - so there's no
excuse not to clean 'em.
About the only good thing I know of to say about cannister filters is
that they make a good CO2 reactor.
Am I missing something here? Can other folks add some other good things
