I'll take #85
put on a 403b on my 40b and LOVE it. Already did some modifications to this piping to make it more rigid and make the surface skimmer work, so far though it is wonderful.

I'm looking to move from HOB to canister for my 46 bowfront, and I was planning to pick up a sunsun or clone from eBay after I get my next rewards certificate.

Tank has a sand bottom and houses BN plecos, among other fish - so it's a fairly high waste environment. Should I be looking at the HW302 or the HW304? I don't care much about the UV light (just another thing to break) but I'd like to ensure proper filtration and flow.

No co2 reactor at this time.

Well, I bit the bullet and bought an HW-302 for my 46 bow. I suspect I would have been better off with the 303's extra flow, but I do have the media box completely filled with floss, bioballs and ceramic media. Worst case, I'll remove some of the floss and see if flow picks up.

I had no issue priming or setting up the pump. The booklet that comes with the filter from China is pretty hilarious on the Engrish front, but I scored a great deal from a local seller (one day ground shipping is nice) and so far I'm pleased. It'll be running in conjunction with a large HOB until it is will cycled. Since I have yet to dirt and cap this tank, it's going to take some time.

Does this make me #86?

Count me in. I've got a new HW-403 up and running on my 40b. I was worried it would be too much flow but it's just about perfect. Mine only came with 3 white pads so I picked up a huge sheet of quilt batting to fill up extra space in the trays. I've got Seachem Matrix in the middle tray and a bag of Purigen and padding in the top. #88

If you're talking about more mechanical filtration you can buy poly-fil quilt batting ( not treated for flame retardant) pot scrubbers or sponges to help fill up the baskets.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this, and sorry if this that been asked and answered before.

What is the difference between the SUNSUN 602B and 603B?

Everywhere I look, ebay, amazon, forums, I am told that the filter placement is different. One has an internal filter or external filter. One sucks water directly from the tank using the pump and the other sucks water through the canister then to the pump and back into the tank. No confirmation on which one is which. It is all very confusing and misleading. Even pictures of the two pumps look exactly the same.

I want one of these canister filters for my 2.5g tank.
I would like for the water to go from the tank to the canister then to the pump and back into the tank.

Do you think these filters are too much for a nano tank? Should I even care about the filter placement or internal vs. external pump?

I would just like to know what I am buying.

Sorry for all the questions. In anticipation, thank you for your help!
