Easiest/fastest to clean (canister) filter for large tank?
I'm in the planning stages of getting a large tank again and I'm doing research on which filter to get. Since this is going to be a fairly large tank (75G or 90G) I'm pretty sure I'll be getting a canister filter, however, I'm looking for opinions on which one would be considered easiest (ie: fastest) to clean. I'm limited on time, so spending extra on a better filter that will save some hassle and time every time it needs to be cleaned is worth it for me.
For example when I had my 55G tank I had a Filstar XP2. I liked the filter, but here's an example of something that I'd like to improve on with this new tank ... the foam filter media was located at the bottom of the filter (underneath the basket with the bio media) you had to take out the bio media basket and place it somewhere. It's soaking wet and my wife wouldn't allow me to place it on the bathroom counter while I clean the filter, so I always had to have a spare container of some sorts that was fish tank safe where I can put the wet parts of the filter while I get to the bottom to clean the foam media. The obvious fix to this would be a filter that has the opposite flow pattern so that the parts you clean most often (the foam) is at the top not at the bottom.
It's these kind of little annoyances and nuances that can either make cleaning the filter very fast or somewhat annoying. If you can share your opinions on which filter you loved the most when it came to cleaning that would be much appreciated.
P.S. The Eheim Professional 3 series seems to have a prefilter at the top of the filter which would help somewhat ... but are there other filters that you would recommend?
