My new tank is on its way
The cabinet is made and is in the process of being stained and the tank is on the way to the shop
Once it gets to the shop I am having an overflow box put in as well as a return hole drilled so i can run the filters without the need for the pipework being in the tank.
I have 2x 2217s on the current tank which this one is going to replace however i am planning something a bit different
I am thinking of running a trickle filter on it rather than both the 2217s. I will run one 2217 off the trickle filter but the second one will be sold with the 4ft tank. The issue is that I know of very few people who have ever used one of these filters before. We use them in the shop and they work really well there but for the home aquarium im not too sure. The biggest advantage for me at the moment is that it gets the heaters out of the tank and out of the way of the big playful oscars who are well known for breaking heaters and zapping themselves
Here is a link to someone selling the same filter so you can see the designhttp://www.perthcichlid.com.au/forum/index.php?showtopic=22000
so, does anyone have any experence with these filters? The pump is 4000 l/h which combined with the 2217 is heaps of filtration
