Seems like I decide and then am unsure of my decision. HOB vs internal. Haven't purchased any and just need to limit what I look at. Trying to figure out best filter options for:
1- a 10 gallon divided in half for 2 boys (currently in 2- 1.8 gallon whisper waterfall globes.)
What I really want to do is a v-shaped section in the middle, where neither of my boys are anywhere near the filter and heater. All that would be seen from the front is the 2 dividers together at the front and angled out at the back. WOULD THIS WORK? The filter also needs to not be bulky sized.
2- a 15 gallon sorority tank for 6 females, possibly a couple nerite snails and/or shrimp. None of which are purchased and won't be until their home is perfect. And that won't happen until boys are settled and happy in their new home.
I would prefer to move away from using carbon in any of my tanks. I have live plants, and none of them seem to be thriving in my current carbon only filter systems. Would also like to stick with possibly ones that have the same filter media for both. That way I can just buy bulk, if possible.
