  1. Hey ya'll I know I have been asking a lot of questions, but better to know than to not know. I am aware that it is better to have too much filtration than not enough filtration but I'm going to ask anyways. I was thinking about purchasing a canister filter. Would this be alright in addition to my two HOB Aqueon Quietflow 50's? Since I'm already filtering at 400gph with the HOB's could I do with a smaller canister as an additional bio/mechanical addition? I was also thinking about getting rid of one of the HOB's eventually (or replacing it with a aquaclear 70) because it makes AWFUL noise, the other runs super silent. I've tried everything to silence the noisy one but nothing works. I did notice that the bushings that were supposed to be on the impellers WEREN'T THERE but Aqueon is sending me some bushings for free, so I will see if that silences it once and for all.
  2. So, after research and what felt like every review available in the internet, I have decided to go with two Fluval fx6 canister filters for my 500 liter (132USG) tank. They just work better for me than the Sunsuns/Aquatop that I also considered, because I saw quite a few videos/reviwes saying Sunsuns can easily loose 45% of their GpH power when they are filled, and I calculated that even if Fluvals will loose as much (so that both units would be working on 55% of claimed GpH), the Fluvals would still go over the 7x GpH circulation recomended for the canister filters of my tank size, while at 55% the SunSuns wouldn't reach even the minimum of 5x. So they just work for me and my tank size. The filters come with some media in already, like sponges around every media tray, coarser(?) sponge pads and (what I think is) decent amount of ceramic rings. (all shown here along the filter parts, as in most of the unboxing videos I saw). I don't think this is enough media for the filters though, and would like some opinions on what to get in addition. Would move ceramic rings do it? Or should I get something else? There are so many options they feel quite overwhelming.
