The canister is 17"x17", and the hoses add at least another 5" to the height.

I have the fx5, and mine has to sit outside of the stand, but it is so good im considering getting a second for the tank. Mine is a 220 that houses several large fish and schools of medium fish (7ft, 2ftx 2ft)
height of filter to top of hose fittings, also leave a couple inches to be able to pull hoses from top of filter


width of filter isnt exactly as advertised either, as there is a power and pump box attached to bottom which sticks out 5 inches as well from the side of the filter
