Eheim filter for 75 gal. tank by DRE
To the group: I was wondering what you experts out there would recommend for a 75 gallon aquarium. The Eheim model 2028 or the Eheim 2126? I would appreciate your advice. I also noticed the Wet/dry model which seems a little like overkill for a tank this size. Thanks for any advice. Dan

How to tell when filter needs changing. by Tim Zimmer
Our ionizer drinking water filter needs changing once every 8 month or more if the city water is clean. Since our city is pretty clean I only worry about chlorine. How can I tell if the activated charcoal filter is still working properly? Thanks
