Hi,

My dad has randomly given me a tank twice the size of my current one. I am pleased with this, its a bit dirty and needs a bit of work but its a good tank. The filter appears to be on its last legs though, I was wondering could anyone recommend what size/type of filter would be needed for a tank this size?

Thanks very much

any Eheim that state that size tank (not had any experience with Eheim but only hear good things)

I have a tetratec ex1200 on my 110L and its amazing, you can turn the flow down if you think its to much... I have the spray bar running along the back of the tank and it provides perfect flow.

If your after an internal filter i'm sorry I cannot help you, but to really recommend an external

internals are cheaper than externals generally.

How about the Fluval U3 or U4?

I used to run a U3 on my 125L and it worked fine.

Hey man I'd recommend this filter I found on Amazon. Cheap and effective. They also do a slightly smaller one for a tenner. : )
