About this deal
If cleaning the filter did not fix the pumping problems, then you may want to try replacing the impeller. This will rotate the water in your 90-gallon community tank about 4 times per hour, which should be enough if it only houses small schooling fish such as neon tetras and zebra danios. The filter pad trays of the Cascade 1500 are not the largest out there, but they will be more than enough for such a setup. Canister filters are often considered the best aquarium filters for freshwater tanks because they offer superior mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration – often times at a reasonable price. They are also well suited for terrariums and turtle tanks since the intake can go down further than power filters. Benefits of Using this Type
Fluval Total Clear will crystallize the water and rapidly remove organics, providing better overall water quality. Also consider adding a coarse pre-filter media at the bottom of the filter to support improved long-term performance. Why is my canister filter emitting bursts of fine air bubbles on my aquarium? The product we tested was the OASE Biomaster 250. In our testing, it ended up being the second most silent canister filter that we tested. The pre-filter option is one of a kind and stands out among all others reviewed and tested. The media capacity is above average. Not amazing like the FX of Eheim pros, but still at the higher end. The specs of their entire line-up is in the table below: Specs The Fluval Canister Filtersare quality Italian made units. I really wish I would hear more about Italian and German made equipment in the Reefing side of the hobby with all the Chinese manufactured equipment, but I guess the freshwater community gets all the good names. The Fluval series has the best quality for the price among all others on this list.Limited media customization: While the Fluval 207 offers excellent multi-stage filtration, the filter media baskets have limited space for customization. If you're looking to add more specialized media types, you might find the available space a bit restrictive. Priming issues: Occasionally, I've encountered some challenges with priming the filter. While it's generally straightforward, there have been instances where I needed to press the priming button multiple times or turn the filter off and on again to dislodge trapped air.
Filters up to / Max Flow Rate (in GPH)” – This is the overall filtering capacity of your canister filter. This GPH rate is measured by the manufacturer in tests where the canister filter has no media inside and the tank it’s attached to has nothing but a bare bottom. Anyhow, I think it’s important to mention that these filters won’t last you 5 years, and if they do, there may be some repairs along the way. Energy efficiency is another standout feature. You might think something this powerful would be a drain on your electricity bill, but you'd be wrong.Easy maintenance: With the Aquastop valves, maintaining the Fluval 207 is a breeze. The valves made disconnecting and reconnecting the filter for cleaning hassle-free, and I appreciate not having to re-prime the filter every time.
