    Hi, so I have a turtle tank and I have a canister filter, I just cleaned the entire tank and noticed that there is an unusual amount of air (that should not be there) in the top of the canister. I have tried tilting it to get the air out, but there's still a lot of air left. I'm not too sure on...

    Hey all, Im setting up my second saltwater reef tank, but I am going to attempt to use a canister filter and lily pipes. I'm curious if there's anyone else on this forum running a saltwater system using freshwater equipment? I have questions about flow and lily pipes as well as the size...

    I have a 40g breeder aquarium with co2 injection and high light and I want to have plants in the aquarium like Ludwigia sp. Atlantis show their nice colors. I want to buy and Eheim Class 350 aka 2215 canister filter. I made a previous thread about my aquarium and I was recommended this Eheim...

    I am the new owner of a Fluval 7 series canister filter. The tubing, intake, and outtake are not the nicest and I'd like to replace them with something sleeker/easier to adjust. I know that you can buy glass lily pipes and such online, but how do I make sure that they are compatible with my...

    Whats up everyone, this is my first post on this site. I am currently in the process of moving and unfortunately i have to take down my two tanks (75g cichlid tank and 20g shrimp/nano tank). I have about a month in between closings but luckily my buddy said I can move the 20g to his house for...

    I'm thinking about possibly trying out a Sunsun HW 302 for a tank upgrade. I do have a few questions though. 1. Does the out put rotate around different directions in the tank? 2. Does it only come with a spraybar? 3. Does the spraybar actually spray all the way down? I've had bad luck with...

    Hi everyone, You guys were awesome the last time I needed help so I figured I'd ask before went any further down the rabbit-hole again. So the consensus last time was that I'd need to do CO2 for my 29 gal tank. I've pick most of my equipment, but I didn't realize that a inline reactor (going...

    Hello group think, I have a 120 planted rainbow tank that has gone through some bouts with first ich and then green water, so I pulled the trigger on a Vecton 2 600 and now I’m scratching my head on how to plumb it. I was going to plumb in into the outlet of one of my two Eheim 4 Pro 600...

    Hey guys, I recently bought a small canister filter for my 10 gallon aquarium. It was rated as a flow rate of 80gph. I know this is always overstated, but figured this would be more than enough for my aquarium. When I first set it up, I recorded 40gph. I figured that was still sufficient. Now...

    Just got my new canister filter and trying to figure out how to integrate CO2. In my HOB, I just inserted a CO2 airline tube into the intake and would hear a tick noise as the bubbles passed the impeller. They had a direct path to the impeller. With the canister filter, the inlet water...

    Hi, I am setting up a new 60 gallon planted tank. This is my first planted tank aquarium. I planning to buy Fluval 307 canister filter along with the lily pipes. But at the local store guy mentioned lily pipe is hard to fit in Fluval canister filter. Is that true?. if no, please suggest me which...

    Hi guys, I've been looking here and there but didn't find an answer to my question. I have a Cobalt EXT canister filter and I love it. Its only downside is that the water inline pump is a bit weak, maybe even weak-er as I'm using it OUTSIDE the tank. That's the beauty of this canister: you can...

    Hi, I've got a used Penguin Biowheel 200 on a 45 tall tank that I've had up and running a little less than a month now. The filter came with a 30g tank I found at goodwill and ended up not trusting, and when I set it up I noticed that the previous owner had opened the motor compartment (you...

    I'm planning on downsizing my existing setup as I will be getting a new larger tank alongside it. I need to use my ecco canister on the big tank, so the small tank will get an internal filter that I have laying around (I will transfer the biomedia). I will also be replacing more than half of the...

    Just found a few baby shrimps in my canister after cleaning it for the first time in a while (first ever babies!). I fished them out of the dirty water before pouring it away; I only got 4 shrimps but I suppose that is better than none! I hadn't fitted a prefilter so that's why they ended up in...

    I'm looking for a canister filter for my 30L/8gallon tank. Eheim seems good but I don't know which model to go with (classic 150, classic 250, eccopro130?). Those filters are rated above the tank size but people say that they have success with them. I also looked at the hydor prime 10 however...

    I am planning to build a 300 gal. tank and a diy canister filter with no sump. I do not want a syphon tube hanging on the back, I would rather use a bulkhead. Are there any problems with this type of setup?

    Hello! So I want to get a canister filter for my 20 gallon. I am tired of the hang on filters and want something that just looks better. What would you recommend that wont break the bank? What would I need as far as it goes for GPH? I am eventually going to get something bigger but I'm just...

    Hey guys, so I recently set up another dirted tank, paired with some fluval stratum and seachem flourite. It's my 36 gallon bow front. Manzanita and Dragonstone hardscape. Currently I have a Finnex Ray II that is putting off about 50-60 Par at 17", correct me if I am wrong. I have a photo period...

    Hi guys, A quick advice from the experienced folks! I am starting an aquascape with my 40gal breeder. I have decided to get a Marineland 220 canister filter. What is your opinion on my choice? will it be under filtered / any other preferred filters for this size of tank? Thanks!
