    This is just a helpful thread for finding the gallons per hour (GPH) filtration of different filters.

    For hang on back (HOB) filters, recommended filtration is 8-10x tank volume an hour. I.e. 20 gallon tank=160-200gph

    For canister filters, recommended filtration is 5x or more tank volume an hour. I.e. 20 gallon tank-100 or more gph
