Thanks guys for the advise n guide.
My 5ft tank cannot put sump. so i just want to put canister filter, but not sure 1 or 2 canister to put.
Do one canister and one or two ac110 to keep good aeration and water movement.
Just be sure to have a tight lid. Most aros die long before they’re full grown because they jump and end up hurting themselves in the fall.

well that would depend on the canister, FX6 if only looking to put in one. but as I stated I would still run some HoB either one or two. fluval 302 or something along those lines be cheaper, about 100 bucks or so new. ac110 about 80 to 100. FX6 High perf about 360.00

It can have a sump unless the sides are tempered glass; people get apprehensive about drilling tanks themselves, but it's really not that bad as long as you're careful about it, and if it's acrylic it's actually pretty trivial.
