Penn-Plax Aquarium Cascade 1000 Canister Filter for aquariums up to 100 gallons $49.35 at Amazon after the $15.59 coupon on the product page.

This is quite a good price for a decent canister filter and would be a great upgrade for anyone with a hang-on-back filter.

Some canister filter tips from the experts:
- For additional filtration power, fill the media baskets with good biological media like biomax, bio rings or sponges. (or for a cheap DIY alternative, try those cheap nylon pot scrubbers you can find at the dollar stores!) Activated carbon is an alternative for chemical filtration, though some hobbyists debate it's efficacy. Save money by buying it loose and bagging it yourself.
- Also, add a prefilter sponge for extra filtration and to keep small debris out of your filter, allowing you to clean the media inside less often. It also can keep smaller fish, shrimp and babies from being sucked in to the filter!
- You might want to put some floss or a pad on the sides of the baskets, since some water can make its way around the baskets and avoid being filtered. Floss will block that easy flow and add filtration.
- ignore the manufacturer's advice to change your sponge pads often. They only say that to keep making money off of you, and you're just throwing away all that beneficial bacteria you built up! If you clean the sponges in tap water, they should last for years, if not decades. You'll probably want to clean and change the floss pads though.
- Also, NEVER clean your media in tap water, because the chlorine and chloramine in tap water will kill the beneficial bacteria that does most of the filtration. Rinse the media with tank water.
- Always take filter manufacturers' aquarium size recommendations with a grain of salt. Those numbers are based on absolutely idea conditions which won't exist in your tank. Always get a filter for a bigger tank than you have. There's no such thing as too much filtration in an aquarium.
- Google "pimp my filter" or search on YouTube for good ideas.

Thank you. Pick up the 700.
I have a 20gal tall tank with some green algae hair growing on it.
Could anyone show me how I could add a diy co2 to this filter? I'm new to diy co2 and this type of filter.
Thank you very much

Besides the size, the 1000 comes with 3 media filter baskets while the 700 only allows for 2. For a few bucks more I'd go for the 1000 over the 700, and you can adjust the flow so it's not too high for your tank.

YouTube diy co2. It's simple. There are two ways, one bottle and two bottles setup. I like the one bottle way.. sugar , dry yeast, and warm water. Shake it and leave it closed for about 3 hrs and you'll see co2. It's the hardware that is kinda expensive. Good luck

Are these things waterproof? I am thinking about using one of these to filter my 150g patio pond.

I have had many of these, connection pieces break off and they tend to leak. But they are inexpensive.

Would this be a good replacement for 2 built in power heads that Marineland top for my 65 gallon. Over the years, those power heads been leaking some water out the back side.

The power heads do work well along with its bio wheel. But really looking at something to resolve the minor leaking problem.

Great price on a great canister filter. Beats the recent low prices by ~$5. (I bought 2 at two separate points in 2020 for $55)

Quote from ResidentPony :
I have a 20 gallon freshwater, heavily planted, with a couple of hanging filters on the back ( 2x Aqueon QuietFlow Aquarium Power Filter, Size 10.) I'm looking for something that will be less disruptive for the creatures and maybe less maintenance too.

Is this overkill? On lowest settings would it provide an advantage over the current units?
Should be fine. Canister filters don't put out too much flow and you can always adjust it with a spray bar with more holes/change direction of the spray.

Cheap canister filters are likely going to be noisier than a HOB. Idk why anyone would go cheap on something that could ruin your house. Imagine how quickly this canister filter could empty your fish tank onto the floor if it leaks.
That's why I buy eheim products so I don't have to worry about replacing my wood floors.
