Right, or beside it, or whatever. After having both I think the filtration is superior to the HOB in many cases, as they seem to really move quite a bit of water. I like them because there is no monster box hanging off the back of the tank, but only a few inobtrusive hoses. I often supplement them with a HOB with biowheels. You can get a biowheel attachment that connects to the outflow of a canister.

I was thinking about getting a internal filter to go with the power filter. After looking at them in the store I decided to save my coins for a canister instead. Take up way to much room.

A 37 GL but its really 27gl when full
Security at the expense of freedom results in neither.

I went out and bought a power filter tonight just because the canister filters are way out of my price range for now. Maybe once I get my tank up and running and have the money to spend ill buy a canister.

Thanks so much for all the imput. I would rather hear it from you guys than a random review because I know that ya'll know what you are talking about..... most of the time at least
