 Want  to  buy  Sobo  Hang  on  Back  Filter  WP303H
 
 I  am  planning  to  by  a  Sobo  Hang  on  Back  Filter  WP303H,  As  per  Indiapetstore  it  is  cheaper  also.  But  never  used  HOB  earlier.  If  anybody  used  this  HOB  earlier  please  suggest.
 
 Once  seen  Eheim  HOB  in  the  expo  in  Hyderabad,  Want  to  know  both  the  filters  has  the  same  filtration  process???  
 
 In  my  15gal  tank  already  I  have  one  RS  electrical  power  filter,  but  it  is  submerged  filter  and  it  is  taking  a  lot  space  inside  my  small  tank  and  also  killing  the  show.  Now  using  this  filter  just  to  get  flow  inside  the  tank.
 
 Not  getting  this  SOBO  HOB  in  any  store  in  Hyderabad.  If  anybody  has  please  PM  the  price.  In  same  range  if  anybody  can  suggest  any  other  brand!!!

 Why  is  this  under  Lighting  for  Planted  forum?
 
 Remember  that  HOB  filters  will  require  you  to  modify  your  hood  if  it  does  not  fit  in  the  space.

 Your  tank  is  approx  55-60  Litres,  Look  for  a  filtration  which  is  3-5  times  the  tank  volume,  Overfiltration  is  always  better  than  lower  filtration.  Going  by  5  times  the  volume  and  also  compensating  for  loss  of  flow  due  to  media,  You  will  need  a  Filter  in  the  range  of  400-500  L/H.  Have  PM'd  you  details  for  the  same.

 @Seetharam
 You  sent  me  the  PM  instead  of  parthapratim22.  I  have  forwarded  it  to  him   Thumb Up  
 
 It  is  always  a  good  idea  to  have  more  filtration  than  less  but  at  the  same  time  I  feel  it  is  important  to  consider  how  much  flow  /  current  the  filter  output  creates.  Now  I  know  internal  filters  can  create  strong  currents  if  you  choose  to  get  extra  filtration  which  is  problem  for  some  fishes  that  do  not  enjoy  high  flow  and  will  always  tend  to  hang  around  the  calmer  areas  of  the  tank.  
 
 I  am  not  sure  how  much  of  this  is  a  problem  in  HOB  since  I  have  not  used  one  in  my  tank  as  my  hood  couldn't  fit  the  one  I  bought.  Bummer   Sad

 Hey  Ranjith
 
 Thanks   Smile  
 
 HOB  its  easy  to  control  the  flow  compared  to  Internal  Filters.  If  you  fill  the  tank  till  the  brim  where  the  HOB  water  outlet  is,  The  flow  will  be  directed  as  ripples  on  the  surface  of  the  water.  Its  a  problem  if  the  water  level  dips  considerably  below  this  as  it  will  act  like  a  waterfall  with  the  flow  hitting  the  bottom  of  the  tank.
 
 But  given  the  fact  that  you  can  put  Bio  Media  in  the  HOB  chamber  its  a  much  better  option  compared  to  Internal  Filters.

 Thanks  Ranjit  for  reminding  me  the  essential  point...tank  hood  is  almost  10cm  lifted  and  glass  edge  is  not  occupied  fully  so  I  think  now  it  won't  be  a  problem...
 
 @Jack  that  was  a  filter,  because  what  I  have  seen  in  the  expo,  there  was  two  channels,  one  was  covered-sucking  the  water  from  the  tank  and  the  other  one  was  open  and  from  that  water  was  coming  into  the  tank....and  it  was  attached  at  the  back  glass  edge.
 
 @Seetharam-  thanks  learnt   new  information  from  your  post.   Submerged  filter  is  also  giving  the  same  output  but  problem  is  it  is  killing  the  show.  Also  thanks  for  alternative  items  in  the  PM.
   What  I  have  seen  in  IPS  having  following  specifications.
 It  is  5w  and  Capacity  280  L/H  and  another  one  is  10w  and  Capacity  500  L/H,  price  range  is  showing  almost  same.

 Yes  HOB  will  definitely  give  more  options  in  usable  filter  media.
 280  LPH  will  be  just  sufficient  for  your  tank.  To  be  on  the  safer  side  go  for  the  500  LPH  one  which  will  be  more  than  enough.
