I've got a 75 gal planted tank with a bunch of tetras and a couple of angel fish. I wouldn't say it's heavily planted but I do have about 15 plants. Anyway, I'm using an eheim canister filter rated for 80 gallons. No serious worries right now... I'm doing weekely water changes etc. Just wondering if I should consder getting another filter. Should I invest in another canister filter or is it common to get something like a bio-wheel to run along with the eheim?

If you don't see unstable or steady worsening water conditions you are good to go. As far as I know that is about the only indication a second filter would be needed. That or water movement...but your post makes it sound like a healthy tank.

When I was running a 75 aggressive tank I ran two HOB biowheels. It was extreme overkill, but I hate doing water changes and it really helped keep the water conditions under control.

its always better to overfilter than to under filter...but it sounds like you are alright. maybe get a couple of small ones to keep the circultaion up around the tank...that is my goal in my agressive tank right now
