May I recommend a SunSun canister filter? I have one on my 27 gallon cube and have had zero problems. It is a lot less expensive than the competition, has a TON of media storage, and pumps a lot of water. And did I mention, it is 110% silent? I can't hear it unless I put my ear within an inch of the canister. I do that every once in a while because I can't tell whether or not it's on, lol.
I've had it for around 9 months now. I have the HW-304A, the model without the UV
. If you get a model with a B at the end, it has UV
. I'd recommend not to use it often, because the plastic on the inside is not UV
resistant, even on the UV
models. But every once in a while is OK.
As far as I know, you can only buy them on ebay.com
If you have any questions, let me know.
