GreyPowerVan I just got my 302 set up, but when i press the prime button virtually nothing happens.. I tried holding my input down near my sand and it seemed to be pushing air out. Is is possible they got the input/output labeled wrong?

EDIT: The reason I ask is because I can't prime it at all and people said that was an issue sometimes.

EDIT2: I figured out what was wrong, had to use some silicon to seal an air leak where the plastic didn't fit 100%, now when I prime a decent amount of water comes into hoses but I've been priming for 10 minutes and my arm is about to fall off. Isn't it supposed to siphon by now? I know there are no more air leaks.

EDIT3: Apparently it only took 20 minutes of priming -- brb, arm is falling off.

It's a surface skimmer, it will polish the surface from oil build up. It shouldn't suck air, it'll be just barely below the water surface. I use to use a surface skimmer from fluval attach to a canister, works great, it's the same thing. If you don't like it, just plug it. The only downside of this, when you feed and food floats, it will get sucked in by this thing.
This is not a protein skimmer that's being use in saltwater, they're not the same.

Lonestarbandit Surprisingly not too much, however since I'm not saltwater I didn't bother with it and just capped it off.

Question & Answer

OK, just finished reading all 32 pages 466 replies but still have a question. Currently using a HOB with no lower level available. My tank is 20 inches tall so canister would be below top of water level but would have to set next to tank. Would this work. Thanks in advance.

Update

Went out and and got a SunSun 302 and can tell you the answer to the above is yes it will work. Love the canister. They should really put a light on it so you know it is running.
SunSun Pimp #(94). I think

cmdR_CHRIS 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!
