I have a question about a Fluval 305 filter. I recently upgraded to a 55 gallon tank for my parrot cichlid. I have had him for about 4-5 years now and he grew from being a little puny 2 inch fish getting chased by a gourami to a 6 inch gorilla that rearranges the tank on me.
i recently bought a 90us gallon tank and im planning to buy a fileter for it which can help me maintain my tank clean for a longer duration. wen i checked with my local pet store i found only this "HW-303B OUT SIDE FILTER"
the shop keeper told me that this filter ll maintain my tank clean for a yr is it so? and its give that it can handle both fresh/salt water is it true?
can i trust this filter?
please let me know ur feedback.

Ok so my filter is messed and my step dad wants to build me one(he has built filters for other things before) he is going to make canister filters but he wants to know can the water be TOO clean. I have waffers for my bottom feeders so thats not a problem he just wants to know if it can be too clean and if it will harm them if it is. I understand the whole good bateria bad bacteria thing and i already have all the bacteria in there it is an established tank. The filter will be a fine filter and charcle and anougher thing i forgote
I'VE READ A BUNCH ON THE NET ABOUT FILTERS !
WONDERING WHAT FILTERS WORK THE BEST?
MY TANK IS A 100GAL
Ok so the title pretty much says it all. I just bought 3 parrots about and inch and a half long and 2 other cichlids that I cant remember the name of now lol. They are blue with orange fins... Anyways, I have an Aquaclear filter and all 5 fish are fascinated by it and insist on hanging around it. Within 10 minutes of being in the tank I already had to unplug the filter for a second because one of the parrots was stuck to it. I am a new fish owner so what do I know, but Im gonna throw it out there and assume this is a very bad thing!
Hi I am purchasing a 46g tank for my BPs and wanted to know what filter suggestions are out there. I understand one should overshoot in terms of filtration and these are somewhat "messy" fish, but there are just so many products out there it is overwhelming. I want to offer my BPs the best environment possible. I have been reading some on biowheel technology which sounds interesting to me. Does anyone have an opinion on these filters? Any specific brands? Thanks, AandA
Just a quick question.
I have a fluval 304 external and it's well matured, about 4 months or so on my tank.
It gets cleaned weekly... However the water inside the canister is brown, when my tank is clear / small tint of brown.
Am I supose to empty the filter water and fill it with tank water when I clean it?
I've always just left it thinking it's the 'benefical bacteria' that are browning it....
Any ideas? Cheers.
Oh, and water is tested often and nothing wrong with it.
