My Aquarium #5

This is my new external canister filter.. Tetra EX90 Power Filter.. Price is RM3xx..


So this filter will replace my hang on back (HOB) filter (black object at the back of the aquarium).



Some explaination about canister filter, taken from http://www.firsttankguide.net/canister.php


Canister Filter Diagram

Canister filters are filters that remove the water from a tank through an intake tube, sieve, or valve, run it through filter media in a pressurized canister, and then pump the water back into the tank via spill way or spray bar.

Canister filters draw water up a lift tube and into a filter chamber or canister where the water is pushed through a series of filter media (bottom-to-top, top-to-bottom, or back-to-front, depending on filter model) which provides chemical, biological, and/or mechanical filtration (depending on the media used). After the water has gone through the filter media, it is pumped back into the tank. Canister filters always use water pumps to move water. Some models have integral pumps, while other models require a separate pump.
