Good evening. I'm looking for an external filter for my new Scaper 90 tank. Do you think that APS 1400 L/H would be over the top? Thank you.

No it wouldn't. You might even be adding a powerhead to improve flow further. Here's a thread on this:


I'm running Fluval 307 and 407 in my 60x45x40 tank, both are not fully filled with media to improve flowrate (my 407 I have 1 media tray empty) and I think the flow is just right. (2 x 407 would have been better). For Lily Pipes to work well, you really need a lot of flow to push the CO2 /CO2 mist to the substrate level. I guess thats why many in this forum are switching to spraybars.
