Well-made and much better filtration than hang-on-back
March 17, 2022
I switched from an Emperor hang-on-back (HOB) filter after using HOBs for many years, and I am very pleased with the purchase. This canister filter provides much more space for different kinds of media and superior biological filtration. The setup takes about an hour, but it is very easy to open and do maintenance on after the initial setup. Water is crystal clear and has a good flow rate for my 36 gallon planted tank. Just remember to use some biological media from your old filter if you're switching to avoid having to re-cycle the tank.
Quality, filtration, ease of maintenance, quiet
Wish it included a spray bar instead of having to purchase separately
