befor i put cichlids in it i want to make sure this filter is ok for my 29 gallon, or for cichlids in general.
Tetra whisper ex45: made for 30-45 gallon tanks

Typically with cichlids you want to have 10x turnover. So with a 29g tank you would ideally like to have a filter(s) that filters 290 gallons per hour. Now that being said you, depending how many fish you put in you may be ok. But I am a believer in over filtration and would get another HOB filter.

*** never personally used that filter. or any filter by tetra for that matter. that being said, i did quickly look up reviews on that model, and people say its quite loud. but other wise, based on the turnover/amount of water it filters, you should have plenty.

it isn't that loud imo, doesn't bother me. have had it cycling the tank for a while now,..Just care if they fish will be healthy, if this helps i was thinking of putting a pair of convicts, or something along those lines in the tank.
