  • Filter placement for best circulation

    I am planning to have two filters in my 95G tank. One of the filters is an internal filter and the other is a canister filter. The internal filter is placed on the right back hand side of the tank with the output positioned at the top back of the tank with water flowing to the other side of the tank.

    Where should I place the intake and spray bar of the canister filter to get the best circulation in the tank

    Some people like to create a circular flow. I let my two filters flow against each other. This creates (at least in my tank) a strong downward flow in the middle of the tank which then circulates back to the filters. A few leaf fragments can be very good indicators to see what your flow pattern is.

    I don't think there's only one way to do it. Making sure flow gets everywhere, that's the issue.
