I plan on setting up an african cichlid tank with a Hexagon shaped aquarium, because of space needs, now, what kind of filter should I use for this kind of tank, I want whats good for the fish and what will work with the Hexagon shaped tank.
maybe try to get a good canister filter that goes under the tank but to line the tubing in the tank to get water in and out. Or get a hood with a built in filter, but idk if they make them for those kinds of tanks.
I have a Hexagonal tank and your best bet is to use an external filter, is hex tanks tend to have a small openng that makes disturbing the decor to remove any internal filters awkward and irritating so stick with external but make sure the pipes are secure and can not pull out of the tank.
