Rapids Mini Canister Filter Mini Canister Filter
I've had this canister setup for only a few hours now, but it is great! I have a 5.5 gallon saltwater tank. I turned the spray bar to about 45 degrees towards the water, so I have great surface agitation, yet the flow isn't too strong on any of my corals or fish, even at 80 gph. Super quiet. I'll probably get some 1/2" tubing so I have more flexibility, but it's working just fine with what it came with. Thanks!

Great product, great value
After running 10 canisters on 10 tanks the water clarity is excellent, the noise level is almost non-existent. The ability of these canisters to work with my existing filters has moved my water maintenance from almost a part time job (twice weekly) to only once a month for water changes, drastically changing my BOD enough to feed freely without fear of excess waste chemicals. I'm actually thinking on an additional 10 tanks with the same setup since maintenance has been so drastically lowered. My dwarf shrimp love the flow from the discharge tube and have responded by far more reproduction than I had expected. I give these filters a two thumbs up, thank you foster and smith.

Tricky, but works amazingly
I have a small 10 gallon fish tank with 2 goldfish. I was about to set up an undergravel filter until I read up more on them and decided against it. I have always liked canister filters and this one was my first. I am very impressed with how clean it keeps the water and how QUIET it is!! The loudest part is the water coming out of the spray bar which I ended up detaching. It was tricky to set up, the instructions are basically pictures, but if you have a little common sense and a lot of patience you should be able to figure it out. Overall I am very happy with this purchase. A great filter for small tanks. Glad I did not go with the undergravel filter.
