Canister filter newbie here. Help?
I'll just say right off the bat that I've been out of the aquarium hobby for almost twelve years and have never used a canister filter before, so please bear with my inexperience, lol.
I purchased a canister filter about a month ago for a 40gal tank (which has nothing living in it at the moment). It's a (lightly used) Sicce Whale 200 that's supposed to run at 190 gph. I've set up and primed it according to the manual + instructional video, but after the canister is done filling and I turn it on, the outflow is really weak.. Like, barely trickling out. The intake/out-take tubes aren't being obstructed or cut off by anything, and it's running quietly with no unusual grinding noises. It's assembled correctly. I can't seem to figure out what the issue is. Advice?
EDIT: Filter has been working perfectly for about a month now, there was a small loose piece inside that fell out while I was putting it together the first time.

Reason: No longer having the issue.
