Difficulty Removing Baskets from Canister
For the 1st coupla to a few weeks, I didn't have this issue.
But I think the suction is making it really difficult to remove my media baskets. So difficult that I cannot get them out without beating the crap out of my canister. 1st basket has nothing but sponges, 2nd has a small amount of ceramics and the 3rd has bio balls and a layer of sponge.
Any tips or solutions?

i have a couple that stick in the filter body. I "walk" them out. Basically I put my hands in the canister, backs facing each other, and I put outward and upward pressure on each side, alternating.
As for separating the baskets from one another.... what kind of filter is this?

I can separate the baskets just fine. It's getting them OUT of the canister. And I can't really fit my hands between the body/baskets. It's a really snug fit.

no, not between the filter body and the basket - I press the basket against the filter body

This Monday will be water change day. So I'll attempt to play with it more. I don't think I tried wiggling it...though you'd think I would of.

Yeah, I find that the bottom basket can be very difficult to remove. The handle can come loose - I've found that applying force to specific areas will keep it in place - gotta play with it some. What I explained is how I get them out - sometimes in conjunction with using the handle, sometimes not.

The handle is the only thing i can use when removing them. unless i flip it upside down, which doesn't help much either.

gosh,that looks as snug as mine..
i've not attempted to try it yet,might be tomorrow.

Funny thing is I never had this issue the 1st 2-3 weeks it was running. I think the flow used to be more powerful as well.
