Canister Filter Setup

Here is a list of equipment I am going to purchase for my new aquascape! I have never ran a canister filter before so anyone with experience on the hoses/connections input would be most appreciated. A connects to B connects to C etc etc. Thank you.


Filter: (classic 250)


Heater: (200w 1/2 hose)

2 x double tap quick release

Outflow: (13mm)

Inflow: (13mm)

Also if anyone has any recommendations on replacement tubing that isn't green.

The Classic 250 already comes with 2 double tap quick releases so you don't have to buy more unless you want to have some on hand. You can consider throwing a bag of Purigen into the canister as well.
