hob filter vs canister for finnex 4 gallon
hey all,

i have the finnex px360 filter which is a nice filter but was wondering if i can use ac20 for the finnex 4 gallon rimless. i don't know how much weight it can take if i use the ac20.

my reason for asking? i personally don't really like the canister filter. yea it's nice but it's not for me.

I don't see why it would be a problem, other than the fact that it's a HOB and those have their own set of issues.. but as far as hanging it on the tank goes, I wouldn't worry about it.

There are smaller (yet functional) HOB's out there.. I have an AZoo Mignion 150 on my 10g betta tank and it's perfect for that tank.

If you are selling your px360 I would be interested in buying it depending on price :)

You could go either or. I have both on my mini tanks. Having played with 3 types of filtration, I like the canister most. I have a Zoomed500 on a 2 gal lol.

Ship your 360 to me! I'll give it a good home.

lol thanks everyone. yea i'm considering selling it right now only cause i personally don't like it. i prefer ac20 over it on my smaller tanks.

i only asked cause i was worried about the weight of the actual filter + water in it with the rimless feature which might stress the glass.

if i sell, i'll let you guys know! thanks

edit-> not right but weight.. lol long day

i ran an ac20 on the shruber-wright 4 gallon rimless just fine. how much are you asking for the finnex 360

I would not worry about the weight. It is very minimal compared all other things the tank has to deal with.
