Default New filter

I have a 20 gallon tank and 2 axolotls, and I want to buy a canister filter for them because of their better ability to filter the water. What is the best canister filter that I can get for under $125?

Hello, I use external filters and wouldnít be without them. Currently Fluval and Eheim. They might be slightly above your budget but give it a consideration. They come in a number of sizes. Very easy maintenance. In side the units there are three sub sections (the larger ones have four) one I fill with fibre to catch large particulate matter and the other two are set up for the bacteria to work their wonders on the nitrogenous wastes. I even go one step further and put the water through a uv unit too which serves to kill off any microbes in the water. It can all add up price wise but Iíve got a fantastic collection of axolotls which Iíve buikt up and to replace them all wound cost a lot more than these filters. Have a read on the tropical fresh water fish forums. Good luck.
