    im currently thinking about a project for summer (long time i know, but research reseach research) and im thinking about a filter for the tank

    i think ive decided on these measurements 36x22x28cm which is 22 liters and 4.5 gallons

    which sized external filter would suit & a key point is it must be quite, almost silent

    thankyou

    I have a 36 x 22 x 26cm tank, and i use the Eheim 2213.
    It' is perhaps a little bit too powerful, but as long as you spread the flow well, it should be fine.

    Cheers,
    James

    Hi Tim
