Thought I would try and pick some of your brains if you don't mind for some ideas,

I'm trying to research the best filtration system for my new 38 UK gal tank and would appreciate any ideas.

There will be 3 or 4 plants in it but not overly so. I have saved a spare bit of cash of this so cost isn't too much of a problem.

In the past I have always used a filter like a fluval and this is all. I've not seen or heard much about bio wheels or canisters? so not too sure how these work.

Doesn't anyone use undergravel filters anymore?!

What is best?!?! arrgghhh!! This is tough! :crazy:

ANY and all advise appreciated!
Get a Eheim canister filter, one of the classic or pro 2 models would be best.

No. :D

I can't help you with the other stuff, but I will say that my friend has a fluval 4+ on a 47 US gallon tank which is full of goldfish. so I dare say you could use that if you wanted to. :dunno:
