| | What's Best for Canister Filters?
Years ago, I used 2 Marineland Magnum 350 canister filters (for a 75 gal tank) that were simple to operate and gave good service.
I've returned to the hobby after a long absence, and the current design of these filters is very disappointing. The media container (which used to be one piece with a lid) is now a fold up piece with a separate screen. The trouble is that the fold up piece doesn't stay together and the screen falls out while I'm trying to fill it. Guess I need about 4 more hands to hold this contraption together
What do you recommend, these days, for canister filters? Or is there another type of filter that I should consider. I've tried power filters, but they don't seem to move enough water.
