Hello! I was wondering what the recommended flow rate is for goldfish aquariums equipped with canister filters. I know that for HOB filters the recommended rate is 10x tank volume per hour. Is it the same for canister filters? Taking into account that the water passes through much more media, would it reduce the amount of flow needed to effectively clean a tank? I know that there are some that still firmly believe in the 10x rule even for canisters, while there are others, like Jennie from SolidGold, who recommend only 5x the flow rate for tanks that are being filtered by canisters. Any answers are much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
