It contains: Multi-stage filter boast two mechanical filtration stages; customizable chemical filtration stage and a dual biological filtration system that employs trickle-filter technology. This is fully customizable set up. The C2 has a rated GPH of 119; the C3 has GPH of 153; and the C4 has a rating of 264 GPH. Maintenance on these filters is made easier with compartments and baskets. These can easily be maintained during different times of the month, so as to maintain a healthy level of beneficial bacteria colony, thereby keeping the Ammonia to Nitrate cycle more intact. Performance is top quality and overall noise of the pump when installed to instructional specifications is non-existent. This filtration only makes noise in the environment to the extent water falls into tank. http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=472&amp;title=fluval-c-series-power-filters&amp;cat=4 http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=472&amp;title=fluval-c-series-power-filters&amp;cat=4 Thu, 28 Jul 2011 16:25:38 +0000 HW-404B <a href="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=454&amp;title=hw-404b&amp;cat=4"><img class="imgborder" border="0" src="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/images/nothumb.gif" alt="" /></a><br /><br />by: lipadj46<br /><br />Description: My canister filter can today from kool_goods on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/AQUARIUM-CANISTE...em2c5b2a 4aaf This is the largest filter in this product line and is supposedly is upgraded from the HW-305B model (I think the biggest upgrade is to the priming pump and to the pump according to the seller). First off the filter itself was packaged up like brick sh!thouse from kool_goods so +1 one for them, I highly recommend this seller. The filter is made in Taiwan as opposed to Made in China (yes I know taiwan is a part of the PRC) which in my experience means a better made product. My first impression was that the filter is absoulutely huge at 19&quot;x12x12. It has 4 media baskets and comes with 4 sponges. I put 3 sponges at the bottom basket for filtering debris and then was able to put 4 liters (!) of seachem matrix and then the last sponge at the top for polishing in the upper 3 baskets. That is enough bio media for a 400 gallon tank, overkill but that is OK. The filter includes nice long spray bars and intake and two 5 ft pieces of thick (too stiff IMO but free is good) tubing. Setup was easy even though this was my first canister filter. I filled the cannister with tank water, turned on the pump and pumped the priming pump and in about 20 seconds I had it going. I also practiced pulling off the tubing housing and that was a breeze with no water spilled. The final thing that struck me (my wife too) is that this thing is dead quiet, so much better than my HOB filters. You cannot hear this thing run, my wife thought it was turned off. The filter is rated at 530 wpg but with the spray bars pointed at the back glass current is fine for my fish. I also forgot to mention that there is a 9 watt UV light but that seems like a gimmick as it is too low of power but it can't hurt I suppose. So at $110 shipped ($15 less for the older model if you are saving money) this seems like a great buy IMO. We will see how it holds up. http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=454&amp;title=hw-404b&amp;cat=4 http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=454&amp;title=hw-404b&amp;cat=4 Fri, 25 Mar 2011 12:09:31 +0000 Bio System Power Filter &amp; Oxy Surface Skimmer <a href="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=354&amp;title=bio-system-power-filter-amp-oxy-surface-skimmer&amp;cat=4"><img class="imgborder" title="bio31.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/data/4/thumbs/bio31.jpg" alt="bio31.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Scrup<br /><br />Description: Innovative, built-in skimmer adjusts to aquarium water level for effective removal of oily, organic film and scum from the surface.

The good: This model is rated for up to 100 gallons by the manufacturer. There are 3 baskets for filtration media in an inline formation. All 3 baskets have a decent capacity for media. There is no &quot;overflow&quot; between the baskets and the filter housing wall. There is minimal play once the baskets are in the housing and actually one required a little wiggling to get it out. The baskets feature retracting handles to remove them. All 3 baskets snap together for water-tight security. The filter housing itself is very sturdy and basically un-bendable. The lid latches are idiot-proof and sturdy, although it is kind of a weird system to use. Two latches provide the seal, and the other two prevent the lid from coming off. You push down on the lid and the two latches will lock themselves. Then just lock the other two. Pump is powerful and flow is good. The intake and spray bar aren't made of the best quality, but are sturdy enough. There is a nice skimmer on the intake. There is one lever to shut off both the inlet and outlet hoses. The prime button is big enough to not hurt your fingers. It is easy to prime, 3 to 4 pushes gets it. It is virtually silent during operation. The bad: The plastic work isn't the best. Everything is fully functional and outstanding, but the molding process isn't the best. It doesn't affect performance, but isn't the highest quality. It is really more of an annoyance. There is really no instructions, but a little common sense can put it together. I have never owned a canister filter and put it together in 20 minutes. Since the pump is in the lid, when you unhook the filter from the tank it will be full of water. This is a bigger filter, and it will be heavy to lift out of tight spaces, i.e., a cabinet. My experience: Before I turned this filter on, I had some tank maintence to do. I spent about an hour rearranging the tank and pushing sand around which clouded the water. I turned the filter on and it removed anything floating around within an hour. It really is silent, can't even hear it. Skimmer works good, but never really catches anything in my tank. The spray bar provides good pressure. Overall, I'm extremely happy with the filters performance. I would recommend them to anyone! http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=295&amp;title=hw-302-outside-canister-filter&amp;cat=4 http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=295&amp;title=hw-302-outside-canister-filter&amp;cat=4 Sun, 24 Jan 2010 19:25:10 +0000 clear choice easy maint <a href="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=276&amp;title=clear-choice-easy-maint&amp;cat=4"><img class="imgborder" title="4679816782B_1_.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/data/4/thumbs/4679816782B_1_.jpg" alt="4679816782B_1_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: smaug<br /><br />Description: &quot;Trickle-flow and Bio Ring media create the optimum environment for natural ammonia digesting bacteria.

EHEIM professionel II is continuing the philosophy of the professionel series consistently and offers greater efficiency with even more convenience. The large priming cylinder on the pump head is not only a special design element. The filter system is filled with this convenient priming support at &quot;the push of a button&quot; and immediately the system starts working.Complicated priming principles for which every aquarium owner developed his own more or less inconvenient and often also wet technology are now a thing of the past. The supplied hose adapter is equipped with 2 shut-off valves. When the safety adapter is mounted, the flow rate is adjusted with the combi-lever. If the hose connection is disconnected, the combi-lever is also used but in conjunction with the red safety catch. The lever is easier to use and faulty operation is virtually impossible. In the hose adapter the flow rate indicator displays the flow rate. This way you can see the filter efficiency at a glance.EHEIM high performance ceramics, i.e. high quality ceramic components, provide for very quiet continuous operation characteristics. The high quality filter canister is equipped with practical filter baskets. Filter baskets are easy to take out and to fill.

The biggest thing that differentiates these from the Penguin models is the spraybar behind the bio-wheel(s). The Emperor Models also have larger filter pads. Both the 280 and 400 take the same size cartridge which is very convenient. Both models also come with extra media baskets which allow for a variety of different media. http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=105&amp;title=emperor-280-amp-400&amp;cat=4 http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=105&amp;title=emperor-280-amp-400&amp;cat=4 Mon, 08 Dec 2008 22:08:02 +0000 cascade 1500 <a href="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=73&amp;title=cascade-1500&amp;cat=4"><img class="imgborder" border="0" src="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/images/nothumb.gif" alt="" /></a><br /><br />by: mollielover<br /><br />Description: This is a relitively cheap canister filter.

Originally denoted by 20xx numbers, as the new models came out they were designated 22xx. Currently available in the US are the 2213, 2215, 2217, 2250, and 2260. The design of these filters is very efficient, the water enters the canister through the bottom of the filter and is returned to the tank through the top. The pump is not extremely powerful on these filters and thus they do not have a high flowrate, however this lower flowrate is more than made up for by the surface area of the media. The Eheim Classic Line canister filter remains a great choice for hobbyists. If low flow is not what you like then these filters are not for you, however if you are not obsessed with high flow in your tank then these are a wonderful option. http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=60&amp;title=classic-line-canister-filters&amp;cat=4 http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=60&amp;title=classic-line-canister-filters&amp;cat=4 Mon, 16 Jun 2008 22:07:56 +0000 Penguin BIO-Wheel (all models) <a href="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/showproduct.php?product=57&amp;title=penguin-bio-wheel-all-models&amp;cat=4"><img class="imgborder" title="Biowheel.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/review/data/4/thumbs/Biowheel.jpg" alt="Biowheel.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: NickFish<br /><br />Description: Eliminate toxic ammonia and nitrite on contact.
