i would get a wet dry but it is little too much work and a little too much money. I was thinking for my 180 gallon either 2 magnum 350s or 3 aquaclear 500s? What do you think?

wet dry seems like too much work. I was thinking of using 2 magnum 350 canister filters. I am not familiar with them. How do you install a canister filter? I there a tube that goes in the tank or something?

350 Mag's have 2 tubes.. Input/Output, powered by an electromagnetic empeller in the middle. Water enters through a siphon tube, passes through a biofilter, and exits.

Just place the empeller and the filter media in the middle, close the top, make sure all rubber rings are present to avoid spills, connect hoses, place in desired spot, plug it in the socket, and its ready to go.

Easy, fast, and simple.

The exit tube (forgot what its called) is in one corner of my tank, while the siphon tube is in the middle to catch dirt, waste and anything along the water flow when it comes and goes past it.

Hope this helps...

I would put one tube in the intake in the middle and one on the end with a powerhead at the opposite end to eliminate any dead spots, then by some taller fake plants to cover up the intake tubes a bit. Just my pre-maturely ejaculated thoughts.

well if figured i would need 2, so i will put the exit tubes in the back corners, and the intake tubes in the middle. Are these filters loud? I use whisper power filter 5s right now, so answer in comparison to those.

Its reasonable. But if your still "iffy".. an AquaClear 500 or an Emperor 400 should do.
