Canister Filter Reccomendation

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys..

I have been out of the hobby for a while and looking to get back into it..

I have my cabinet in place and about to order a 4x18x24 Tank. Lighting and heating is sorted.

I used to run Eheim Classic Canister filters religiously however I feel there may be something better in the market now.

So just looking for some feedback on what you use, what you love, what hasnt worked and what you would suggest staying away from. Price is important but willing to buy the right filter.

Tank will have a colony of Xenotilapia Sp. and likely a group of Leptosoma for open water movement.

Thanks

Alvon

I always used Eheim or Fluval canister filters in the past and they pretty much lasted forever. 

I have tried some other brands but didn’t find them as long lasting. 

That is my experience.

Hi Alvon

have you considered a sump

best time to do it is if you are getting a  new tank made

as you can position the tank holes to where the sump will sit in the cabinet

if you are still considering cannister filters I use Eheim and they are ages old

so don't know what the new gen Eheims are like but my 2260 just goes and goes

lots of people have given the FX6 Fluval good reviews
