    Good day DIYers alike i have decided to build a canister filter for my tank it 1,2m x 45 x 45 and is approximately 290L I was looking for an external pump as I want to use it inline. The largest one I could find is 1400L/H i was wondering if this would be ok or if someone knows where I can get a larger one from

    @carl leathwhite ,

    14000 liters per hour is way too big for a 1.2m tank.... if i am understanding correctly

    1400lph is perfect. How are you setting the rest up?

    I’m planing on doing it in a vertical piece of PVC with outlet on the bottom intake on the top and custom laser cut media trays
