| | Re: Zoomed 501 Canister Filter Question
I actually set my filter below my tank and experienced better flow. YMMV.
I would consider another filter, as the zoomed 501 is actually very weak. I have one on a 5.5 gallon tank with just shrimp, and it barely keeps up. Maybe take a look at an Eheim or Rena Filstar canister, especially with a turtle. I think (never owned one) that they are quite the poo factories.
