Discussion about cichlid tank filtration
Moderator: Ken Boorman
I am planning to buy an excellent filter for my Sandsifter & featherfin cichlids tank because I am using a power filter and sponge filter for my tank, and I think that it is not enough for my cichlids. I really want them to be very happy and very healthy, so they can live longer and longer.
Which one it is much better between canister filters and sumps. Which company? Why? And, how can I set it up? My tank is over than 150 gallons. Thank you very much it will be greatly appreciated.

I use a Fluval fx5 on my 110 gallons which is more than enough filtration. It keeps my tank spotless and requires minimum maintenance. The fluval fx5 is rated up to 400 gallons and moved 900 GPH.
You really can't go wrong with this filter. I have been running fluvals for years and never had any problems. I wouldn't chose any other brand.
Hope I could help.
