Hey guys,
First time post - so bear with me.

While not new to the hobby, it is my first time keeping africans. I plan on having an overstocked mbuna tank and are basically waiting on getting some pumps before moving forward. As a side note I plan on using bio filtration rather than chemical.

My question is this, should I get a larger eheim classic filter think 2215/2217 or get two aquaone cf1200 (also know as the via larger filter) http://www.hollywoodfishfarm.co.nz/prod ... er-filter/
I understand I'll need over filtration and bio media is more effective at lower flow rates but that two filters is always better than one.

Also, living in New Zealand my access to filters is somewhat limited.

Thanks for any input.

Hey guys,
Thanks for the replies! Have been reading over your website now. I'm going to admit I'm a bit surprised I came across another JAFA so quickly.

I can't believe I forgot the tank size! doh, its a 55g and planning on mbunas.
