I like the idea of the canisters, just for the neatness. Sure they have other great qualities right?
I am liking the reviews of the Fluval 305. I am a little bit scared as I have only ever delt with the HOB filters.
Can anyone steer me in the right direction, like, yes the 305 will be more than enough..., here are the additional items you will need to run this...etc...
Yes a Fluval 305 is would be a fine choice for your 40g. If you do, I suggest you go with 100% poly-fill (at any arts & craft store)for the bottom media tray as it will compliment the foam pads and really help polish the water by removing micro debris the foam pads miss. The other trays can have Biomax, or some other brand ceramic rings. No need to do carbon unless you are removing meds from the water.
