You want one that supplies a lot of oxygen like a wet/dry filter, or the canister filter. Has anyone used a Bio - Wheel? My LFS depends on it.

Me too, but I just had some FW eels a while back and am now just using the FW tank for housing guppies since I can't get shrimp for my seahorses yet. My LFS says you don't need to change the filter cartridges in them but that is probably BS since they also thought octos would eat aiptasia.

They are a filter like you would use in a house for filtering drinking water etc. They are 10" 5 mircon sediment cartridge filter in a plastic canister. :smile:
