Canister filter

Am looking for a canister filter just to help clean the water more and get the small partials out I already have a filter that's part of my tank it's a jbj 30 rimless tank so it comes with a filter and I was wondering if anyone had good luck with one and not to expensive?

I like my [5] $40 Sunsun Canister from amazon... Moves water through media quite effectively....

Canister filter

If you are just wanting to improve water clarity try Purigen.

Purigen is a resin that removes organic nitrogen from the aquarium... This will ideally stabilize nitrate and remove anything that causes nitrate before it can be nitrified. It is no mechanical filter or an additional means of biological filtration. It will simply remove all nitrogenous organic waste that passes through it.

This is why I'm not a fan of smaller sunsun filters. They have a TON of media bypass in them.



I still use them, but tbh I am not gonna go out of my way to buy them anymore.

I hear ya... They do not move water through ALL of the media.... I just load mine up with Matrix or rock ruble and am not too picky. But I could see why for other purposes it's not as efficient... Get what you pay for haha.. Design it right. You can even punch out the trays to encourage better flow.
