| | Re: Canister Filter question
I don't think it is a good idea to try to make one filter work for multiple tanks. First, three smaller filters will cost little more than the monster filter needed to service all three tanks. Second, the water from the three tanks would be mixed, so any problem in one tank would become a problem in all three. Third, there are too many ways to end up with water all over the floor and one tank virtually emptied. Fourth, you would be forced to keep the three tanks very close together, but that just guarantees that you will want to put them in different locations. It is a bad idea all around.
