Question Filters???

Okay, well what type of filters are there and their pros and cons.

I have a ten gallon that my dad came home with last year, and I haven't been able to find a filter I like to one that came with it is for a 50gallon I think , or thats what my dad looked u on the internet and its a bit strong , (go figure) I also have a "stingray" for 10gallons and thats too strong also.

I use the tank for my livebearers so it need to be able to be covered or something to stop them from getting sucked in...

Any help???

I have always used an aquafina filter, you have to change them more often but they work great.

I'm a big fan of AquaClears for smaller tanks. They are awesome . You don't ever completely change the filter media so you don't have the problem of a mini-cycle starting.

I agree with the posts above - I have used both and had good luck. In addition I always use a sponge filter in the corner. I got into this habit a few years ago when breeding discus. Discus can not tolerate poor water conditions and required this. I have used the sponge filter in every tank since (mainly African cichlids). They are a bit unsightly I guess, but I am used to them at this point.
