So I have built a new stand and have a 29 gallon tank waiting to be set up with rocks and cycled. I do not have the room or funds for a sump build and I wanted to try to not use a hand on the back filter for this tank. I have used one in the past for this size tank and it was fine, but I wanted to try to use a canister filter just so I wouldn't have to see the filter. I hear that they are not meant for saltwater tanks, as they are nitrate factories, but not if you clean them well every other week or more. Does anyone have any suggestions for a particular brand of canister filter for a 29 gallon tank? I want to get a nice one that will last a while. Also, what kind of filter media should I put inside to try to not have so much nitrates built up? ceramic rings? bio balls? what are the recommended media for canister filters for saltwater tanks? Thank you!, I am really looking forward to setting this up and I am trying to buy everything asap so I can start this project.
