Smile i just got my finnex 360 canister filter - LOVE IT

first I LOVE THIS FILTER... it's so quite i have to keep checking it to see if it's running!

when i asked about replacement media i was told i didn't need any i could just use stuff from my local fish store (from aqua vibrant) .. i just don't remember what?

in the past when i've had small tanks with a HOB filter they were so 'noisy' now this quite is relaxing.. THANKS!

now if you only sold some nice clear parts to replace those black parts ...

That's great to hear. As for replacements, those chambers can be filled with whatever you choose in the future. Bio Rings, purigen, filter floss, carbon, etc. Or you may order the cartridge straight through us!

Most people point the outtake towards the back of the tank (the same pane of glass the tube is suctioned too) to limit current.

Also, the filter only has a lift of 2 feet. I wouldn't recommend extending the tubing as it will put more pressure on the filter. Sorry about that.
