    i would say tunze as the provide a wider/dipersed flow. closed loop would look neater and be safer for nennys.
    why not both?

    TUNZE!!! bit expensive but it is really a investment

    closed loop is very nice, some pros: the powerheads won't give heat off in the tank and no powerhead in dt:thumbup:

    I would go for tunze. Closed loops are more prone to leaking etc and unless you get something like ocean motions 4-way there won't be a lot of variability in the flow and they don't provide a gentle flow like the streams.
