Setting up my old tank

Post by Markeh91 on 31/7/2012, 23:10

ive decided to set up my old fish tank thats gone spare since upgrading so i need to buy a new pump i was either thinking of the eheim 2126 or a fluval 406

eheim is the cheaper to buy but more expensive for parts/media
both do about a 400l tank size but the eheim only does about 900lph while the fluval clain a huge 1450lph
the tank size for these to fit is only a 240l but i believe in over filtering especially with these 2 having flow control valves.

i am currently using a fluval 305 so am familiar with these canisters but im unsure on eheim although i have heard a few more people rate the eheim higher than fluval

anyone got any experience on running eheim's or the new fluval 06 series?
