What type of filter should I use??

Postby 6ATREYU94352 » Thu Jan 17, 2008 5:14 pm

I have a 55 gal. tank, currently I have a hang on filter system. My tank seems to be cloudy. I only have 2 koi fish one is about 7-8 inches the other is about 4-5 inches Im probablly over feeding them which Im slowley decreasing. Im doing 15 percent water changes weekly that seems to be helping i was considering a canister filter I've been researching and im still undecided?? any info would be great.

Oh yeah I'm new to this site, So greetings to all!!

Ive got a 60gal bow front with an Oscar and Chocolate Cichlid. I havnt had any problems in terms of cloudiness, but for filters I use 2 side filters; an AquaClear 150 and 300, as well as an undertank filter which is absolutely awesome. Its a Fluval 205, and Ive had no problems whatsoever, even though my fish are perhaps the messiest fish on the planet. I also do 25% water changes once a week. I'd try getting an undertank filter, or replacing your filter media.
