Can someone who has one of the Tom Aquatics Rapids mini canisters post the actual dimensions. Thinking of getting one and trying to fit it in a Fluval Edge which has a really tiny rear enclosure.

The most critical dimensions are:
- Width (including tabs used to lock the cannister). I think this needs to be less than 3.25"
- Length (again interested in the longest dimension).

Also interested in total height including the cover but that is actually less critical

Many thanks in advance.

Others on this forum have already posted that it does fit in the Edge. IIRC, check the Edge thread.
Thanks but that was the Zoo Med that was tried in that thread, not the Tom's. Regardless, sounds like the Tom's is an even worse fit

So for reference, the Zoo Med 501's dimensions are:

- Width (locking tab to locking tab): almost exactly 3.5"
- Height: 6 3/8"
- Length: 6"

Net, slightly smaller than the Tom's filter.
