With a rectangular shape borrowed from the design of Japanese-style canister filters, the Hydor Professional Canister Filter can hold a larger volume of filtration media than round designs.

Hydor also offers a highly efficient motor and soundproofing features for nearly silent operation.
Hydor Canister Filter No Noise Vibration
This filter can definitely compete with high-end brands when it comes to quality and features, and it even offers improvements in efficiency and operation.
Plus, you can buy a Hydor filter for much cheaper than an equivalent filter from Eheim, Fluval, or Marineland.
The efficient design of this filter features media trays that are completely flush against the sides, which forces water through the filtration media.
You won’t have to worry about your tank water creating a bypass channel and passing through unfiltered.
