If my AquaClear 110 continues to go in the direction it's going, that is, return flow almost down to a near trickle, I think I am just going to chuck it and replace it with another filter -- I'd like to stay with a powerful HOB
, but I suppose I would consider a canister although I have no experience with them, at all...
What would be recommended in the HOB
area first outside of AquaClear for a 60 gallon goldfish tank -- Marineland? Tetra Whisper? Perhaps another Aqueon (they have replaced the QuietFlow 55 I own with a new, more powerful model)? Am I looking over any brands here?
If I go with a canister and simply add it to the two HOBs I have now, can someone walk me through how a canister filter works, briefly?
