Canister filters are one of the most common upgrades that new aquarists go to in their first couple of years of fishkeeping. What is a canister filter you ask? – Well its a pressurised container often cylindrical or square in shape that holds various types of filter media through which the aquarium water is pumped to remove particulates and expose any impurifications in your aquarium water to the nitrifying bacteria you are breeding to keep your aquarium healthy.
The water from the tank runs from a hose into the canister filter where it is filtered throughout the media and then sent back into the tank. Some canister filters utilize top to bottom functionality, while others function bottom to top. Also, there are canister filters that filter the water from the centre of the filter outwards, or vice a versa. In any of these cases, a pump is required to push the water into the filter and back out into the tank. Aqua One canister filters filter from top to bottom but have the inlet and return in the same position at the top of the filter.
Canister filters are widely considered to be of the most cost efficient filtration systems available and this stems not only from the low wattage of modern filters, but also from the ability to target specific filtration through the use of different chemical and biological media to target ammonia, phosphates, nitrates or any other nasties you have it in for.
