    Help Compact internal filter

    Thanks for the suggestions. I tend to agree about the Top Fin brand products and hence my hesitation. I tried to trim the hood but it wasn't that easy. I didn't want to try hard and mess it up - may crack it or something. Then I'll be in big trouble I do have some sponge filters with me and...

    Question best canister filter for 20G long BW tank

    Have you considered Fluval? I have a Fluval 206 on a 25 gal tank (tall) planted tank. Works great. Fluval 106 may also be adequate for a 20 gal tank.... You can adjust the flow as well.... I thought you could adjust the flow with most of the canisters.....
