 Hi  friends,
 
 Posting  here  after  a  long  long  time.  Now,  I  have  a  situation  here  where  I  have  snake  head   tank  sitting  on  the  ground,  the  water  is  around  250  liters  3/4  filled.  I  am  not  able  to  run  my  sun  sun  canister  filter  here  due  to  lack  of  gravitational  force  for  siphoning  out  the  water  to  a  canister.  Thus  I  was  thinking  of  placing  a  Eheim  2211  canister  directly  under  water.  I  had  seen  this  at  a  shop  in  Vile  Parle  Mumbai.  
 Does  anybody  have  or  had   a  first  hand  experience  ?  Will  it  leak  some  electric  current  in  the  water  ?   
 
 thanks

 Hi,
 
 May  be  you  should  consider  HOB  filters  for  your  tank.  Canister  filters  will  also  work  even  if  it  is  kept  at  tank  level  provided  priming  is  done  correctly  and  there  are  no  trapped  air  bubbles.
 
 On  a  serious  note,  forget  submerging  canister  filter  inside  tank.  They  are  not  made  for  such  operations.  
 
 Eheim  2211  is  not  suitable  for  your  tank  size.  I  would  use  it  for  max  50  Ltr  tank  only
 
 regards

 Vipin  thanks  for  your  point.  The  water  level  is  3/4  lower  so  i  cannot  have  HOB  and  due  this  low  water  level  my  canister  is  not  priming.

 In  that  case  I'll  recommend  corner  filter  with  powerhead  "upgrade"
 
 What  you  have  to  do  is  buy  normal  corner  filter  that  operates  on  bubbles.  Then  instead  of  using  aeration  to  drive  filtration,  use  powerhead  on  the  corner  filter.  There  are  different  sizes  of  corner  filters  in  terms  of  height.  Buy  one  that  is  appropriate  for  your  water  level.
 
 The  reason  i'm  recommending  this  hack  instead  of  regular  internal  filter  is  because  its  compact  and  you  can  use  layers  of  various  biofilters  inside  the  corner  filter.  Think  over  it.
 
 regards,

 I  am  trying  with  biobox2  internal  filter  with  lots  of  alteration  and  modification  to  increase  media  volume

 You  can  insert  a  power  head  inside  the  tank  and  send  water  to  canister  filter.  Once  the  canister  filter  siphons  the  water  on  its  own  you  can  shut  off  the  internal  pump.
