Hang on Fliter VS Cannister Filter
 
Hi all,

What's the difference between the 2?

I am using Jebo 838, but it does seems to be "sucking" those dirty stuff in.

Feels that my old hang on filter is better.

Can tell me what is the difference between the 2?

:)

canister create less surface water movement, reduce co2 loss also usually have bigger filter area for beneficial bacteria to colonize

Isn't that a filter supposed to do?

Anway how big is your tank? HOF is good when you are using a small tank ( it is great for nano low tech reef tank) As for CO2 escaping the water column due to water surface aggitation by HOF, it is better to go for internal or external if you do not have CO2 injection, else it should be fine. My 1 feet low tech tank has an internal eden 104 filter, which works great with only bio media and no filter wool.

Bootom layer, bio fibre then peat plus sponge,then ceramic riings plus sponge, as well as the top layer.

The inlet and outlet tap i open abt 1/2.

1200L/H is the flow rate. 1200 liters per hour.
