    I am looking at getting a canister filtration to go with my Aquaclear HOB, I have been pondering over the difference between the Fluval 305 vs 306. Ccan anyone tell me the difference and if there's a benefit between the two or if there's a better canister system.

    Welcome to the forum

    There really isn't much of a difference. It's not like the 05 was a bad filter. I'd say get whatever is cheaper.

    Hi, welcome to Fishlore :;hi2

    Aside from aesthetics, the biggest difference is the 06 series is more efficient. Fluval (Hagen) claim 15% more flow for the same wattage.
