I wasn't sure about these, but after watching a video review of them maybe they are a way to go. My interest in a canister filter is increased filtration, less maintenance, and better flow. And for...

So a few months ago I purchased 6 Glowlight Tetras from a LFS. In transport, the clerk somehow dropped one on the floor or it jumped out of the little plastic square they use. They paused for a...
