I'm no expert on canister filters (obviously) and I don't know much about fluid dynamics either, but I do know that water/plumbing acts very similar to electricity/circuits and that the amount of water going into the canister = the amount of water coming out.
Theoretically, as long as the pipes/hoses could support the pressure, the canister inflow should = canister outflow. You could vary inflow at certain points of the tank by varying the diameter of tubing/pipes used at each point. (right?)
I'm just curious what people with long tanks do if they have a canister filter? do they get multiple mid-sized filters instead of one large one?
What if you have a large tank that's divided? Purchase expensive canister filters instead of cheap tubing to split up one?
Just some thoughts. Like I said, i dont know much about canister filters.
