    I'm looking for a canister filter for some extra filtration in my 55 and I was wondering what would be best to get out of these two I heard Finnex is very reliable but doesn't have as much filtration as the SunSun. Share your thoughts.

    The SunSun HW-302 is amazing. I love it as it's super cheap, very quiet, and has tons of media space/options. For the price of 1 canister of other brands, you can have 2 or 3 of the SunSun's. Here is a good link that explains setup and gives a run down of the filter....

    Any canister is a lot if your goal is just extra filtration. Normally, the canister is in place and you add a quality power filter for a little extra. What is on the tank now?

    The tank is on a cheap 55 gallon HOB right now

    While I think the Finnex is a great filter, it is too small to be effective on the larger tank. I would get a filter with a capacity to handle the 55 gallon on its own. And then you would have extra insurance with the two filters.
