You forget to mention canister filters are multi functional. Depends on many factors. The things you mention are not valid concerning fish care. Not everyone cares about size, look or money. Fish can be a very expensive hobbies. I want the best for my very expensive fish. I'm not putting a crappy filter for my $200 lion fish

I had to swap over to HOB because I got old somehow and doing maintenance on the floor under the stand became too much.

everybody today puts to much trust into surface area in a filter, when I started it was just about mechanical in the mid 90s they started pushing biological everything and once my tanks reached about 3 months never had any biological problems using either system ,and the magnum 350 I still run today and I would put up against all this new junk they call filters. I beleave the surface area in the tank after enough time will support your load unless you go heavy on the your fish load, I keep 9 8 to 12 inch south American cichlids in a 150 gallon tank with the magnum also a 18 inch pleaco changing 10 percent water a week I test my water once month for the last 15 years have not seen any Ammonia ,Nitrites in 25 years and times I've got burn out and let tank go with pleco poop all over the bottom and still no issues with Ammonia ,Nitrites and no plants and nitrate have never got that high it is what it is ,you say we don't need but we don't need fish either we want fish its just a hobby just like filters we want we didint need em we want them. just my 2 cents

We have an ehiem canister on our 55 after fights with aquaclear. It works well for us on that one... But do we need it? Probably not. And it does make noise, I think more than a normal HOB.

We don't have constraints on space and we had the money for it.

Soo I shouldn't get a canister filter for my 5 gallon?

I never dislike a video but brother this video is garbage, a much better title would be. Do you need a Canister Filter?

spray bars can be amazing at adding oxygen... you have to have it above the water and spraying into the surface from about half inch above. it traps oxygen and pushes it into your tank with flow... if you rely on surface aggetation by keeping the bar and flow flush with the surface its not good at all. actually its pretty terrible. my chain pickerel (pickle) will start gasping in about 3 hours if i not using the spray bar as a waterfall.

personally i think canister should only be used for huge bioload... i got one because i wanted to process large bioload, not so often, and add some good flow to the tank without using a powerhead, adding an airstone, or air pump. it was a good move for what i was using it for. saved me a bunch of money.

i talked to a guy on fb who put a cascade 1000 on a 9 gallon cube hahahaha... some people are crazy.. i have a cascade 700 on a 55 with 5 plecos, snails and pickerel

I've been trying to visit Goliad Farms for 7 years. They've made it through different natural disasters. The only sustainable fish farm I've ever seen.
