Hello guys!

     Im starting a new larger tank and this will be a first time for using and setting up a canister filter. Does anyone know how to make it Shrimp safe??? From what Ive been seeing it seems like a giant tube for intake and outtake with nothing on the end stopping the shrimps from going up . Also any canisters that come with all parts like full tubing that will reach ect??  What do you guys use in your canisters and where can you get it cheapest!? Looking for the most deals AS POSSSIBBE.

 

Thanks!!

Hi @HumanArtRebel1020

 

You can integrate sponge filter with your canister. This is what I have in my setup. Depending on the inlet/outlet size of your canister, buy appropriate flexible tubing and sponge filter. I believe that the hard tubing on the sponge filter will go into a 1/2" I.D. flexible tubing. I hope that this will help.

I prefer stainless steel prefilters and had one for my eheim canister ages ago.  I think I had bought it from H4N aquatics or something.  Usually if you find a vendor you just give them the diameter of the intake and they make one for you.  I have a bunch for my AQ30's and canisters.
