Sump deficiencies

Recommended Posts

Hi Gurus,

The planning stage for the new tank (5x2x31h) is almost complete before I start spending the bucks apart from one aspect. Filtration. It will be a heavily planted tank with small fish, tetra's, rams, cory's and L pleco's.

At the moment I'm tossing up between re-using my FX5 or going for a sump.

I fully aware of issues that a lot of people have been having with their FX5's, however I want to hear about the disadvantages of sumps?

Cheers

Muzz

Honestly if its fairly heavily planted and you only have small fish and keep feeding under control you wont nee much more than a standard canister filter and an internal filter to push/move some water around. So long as you look after you plants they will do all the filtering for you.
