    Hi all,

    Im looking for advice regarding external filters.
    I have a 72 Gal tank that will be planted and have fish; and a 13 Gal tank that will have a few plants and fish. Both tanks will have low light and use excel CO2.

    I have read that high flow rates are beneficial, but what sort of flow rates am I looking for?
    Any suggestions on what filter/s to buy?

    Remember one thing. Canister filter over rate their flow by a factor of two. For your small tank a nice hang on like the azoo or aquaclear are good choices. For your large tank Eheim pro or fluval are a nice choice .
