    A reservoir is a reservoir; it holds water.

    It really depends if you want a bay res, a cylinder res or even a top/res.
  2. as long as its sealed and holds water it works.
    i prefer tube over bay because of the looks, the bay clutters the front panel too much in my opinion.

    one of my favorites is right here :

  3. very similar to the BitzPower Multi-z as well.
  4. Technically you don't actually need a res, but often a pump top res is the best bet and can help improve flow rates.
  5. It all comes down to space, I use a bay res containing a pump because it is compact.

    Others may use different reservoirs because they have a larger case.
  6. thank you all for your input
