    Hi All.

    I have 5 x 500L/h power filters running on my tank and they are having there last days.

    I wanto replace them with a canister filter.

    My tank is only about 100-120 liter.

    So far I have looked at the following:

    Fluval 104 ( 480 L/H ) - R 750.00
    H20 Cfs ( Square design ) ( 600 L/H ) - R515.00
    Dophin ( 900 L/H ) - R600.00
    Cascade ( 700 L/H ) - Still looking for pricing
    Any body have any comments on these 4? Any other suggestions?

    How many L/h would be fine on my tank ? Keeping in mind that I dont want to create a river and blow all my plants away.

    Looking forward to your response!

    for a tank that size i would go either with the Fluval or one of the smaller eheims.
