If you have a smaller aquarium, this filter will give you the option to install a canister filter rather than being stuck with an HOB system.
It is a canister filter, but it comes with brackets so you can hang it on the back, or you can stow it away like a typical canister.
Finnex PX-360 Installed
The PX-360 also gives you the option to use the included spray bar to distribute your water flow across the tank, or a spray nozzle if you want a stronger flow. With a 95 gph flow rate, this thing has very strong water flow for small tanks.
The Finnex is rated for tanks up to 25 gallons, but it’s especially great for much smaller tanks where canister filters typically aren’t an option.
This filter has two stackable media trays that come jam packed with included filtration media, including an optional sponge strainer. Like all canister filters, you also have the option to use your own choice of filtration media.

Considering the lower cost of this unit, the build quality is very impressive and all the materials feel solid. It also includes many features and accessories typically found on more expensive filters, like a spray bar and optional sponge strainer.
Setup is simple, especially if you’ve put together a canister filter before, and the instructions are actually fairly detailed and straightforward.
