We always used to use Ehiem for cannisters,just in this last case the price was a main factor. We have a big wet and dry and we are gonna have to take it up the dump sadly as its way too big for the little tank we put the allpond cannister on.
Also got one of those Hydor flip flop things , had an ongoing constant impellor replacement and two out of four pumps replaced , then the rep just said thats yer lot ,even tho all 4pumps were malfunctioning ,so I would never reccomend them as a company. Cost me also to send back useless pumps.
At this point its when I said fck it just buy cheap and discard ,a guess one could run them on timers 15 mins on 15 off alternateing between 2-4 pumps dependant on tank size.
Then I came to this forum and was told about Jaebao . But still deff not cheap.
