    Hi all.
    What filtration do you guys and gals recommend for a standard 60cm (soon to be planted) tank?
    I currently have sponge filter in, but when doing a complete teardown and rebuild, I want to update to something better.

    TIA

    Tetratec ex600 or the ex700.
    But you can also look at the eheim filters. Like the 2213.

    Go for the Eheim 2213, Sam's has an unbelievable special on it for R615.

    I always like a Aquaclear hob on a smaller tank, easy to clean and install.

    Totally agree with you here, I've also got a two foot and was going to add a canister filter but bought a HOB and its working thus far, I've got the haliea second smallest one , not very strong but does the trick
