The Rena Smart Filter is revolutionary aquarium power filter (HOB), bringing the superior filtration of a canister filter to the back of the aquarium for simplicity of maintenance.
When a Filter Max Pre-Filter is added to the Smart Filter it is unsurpassed as a Hang On Aquarium Filter.

Filter Max Aquarium Pre-Filters
For improved bio filtration, improved aquarium filter efficiency. These Sponge pre-filters prevent fry, debris, and other material from being trapped in an aquarium filter intake and increase filter intake depth

Tubing, Hose Clamps
The SunSun utilizes a tubing metric tubing size that is very close to the 5/8 inch ID tubing we sell on this page linked to on the left (please note that the 750 Filter already has tubing included, you only would need to purchase extra for applications such as a UV Sterilizer where more tubing may be required)


Universal Intake for Canister Filters & other Plumbing Parts

Unique Heavy duty intake that fits most all canister filters requiring 1/2" to 5/8" (12-16mm) ID Tubing for the intake. An alternative for filters where this part is not available or is discontinued. As well for those who simply prefer an intake with more rugged construction.

SunSun HW 402B, HW 303B & HW 404B Canister Filters

Via Aqua 750, SunSun HW 302, HW 303B, HW 304B Canister Filters 

We are now selling the SunSun Canister Filter Systems which are an excellent "Value" aquarium filter system as per our early testing.
The SunSun is the continuation of American (USA ) Designed/Engineered Aquarium Products that are built in Asia.
SunSuns's external 3-5 stage canister has 3 flexible media trays that allow you to add the filtration media of your choice.

Included in OUR SunSun Canister Filters is ADDITIONAL filter fiber, activated carbon, and volcanic rock (not otherwise standard with these filters).
The extra filter material and retrofit improvement is not available with SunSun filters sold elsewhere such as Amazon.

We still sell parts for the excellent Via Aqua 650/750 Filters (when available), however due to increasing prices, and poor business management we are no longer selling Via Aqua's Canister Filters.

• All SunSun Canister Filters include a Simple Spade Valve, we also sell separately a premium Ball Valve for better flow control if desired (this is NOT offered by other sellers of this filter!).

We include a Return Elbow & Intake Stem that we strengthen and retrofit with an outer layer of 5/8" & 3/4" vinyl tubing to provide the best possible canister filters for our customer (we make this improvement based on our use of this filter).
If you purchase your SunSun Canister Filter elsewhere such as Amazon or eBay (or related Canister Filters commonly sold under other brand names), you will NOT get this improvement and thus be purchasing an inferior filter with a higher incidence of leaks, problems of air in the system, etc.
This along with added filter material, & pre-testing makes our price near cost! You also cannot trust reviews of these filters from Amazon or elsewhere, as they are an inferior filter than the one we sell!!


As with ALL Aquarium Canister filters, these are for indoor use ONLY.

9 Watt G23 Lamp Internal UV Sterilizer included
As with ANY Canister Filter with a “built in” UV Sterilizer, these generally are AT best for green or cloudy water and not for level 1 or 2 Sterilization, despite many claims (see Aquarium UV Sterilization); In blunt honesty, do not purchase this Filter or any other similar filter based on this feature, purchase based on its merits of a being an good filter for the price!
That said this canister filter has the best flow design around the UV Lamp of any we have inspected for use in our sister aquarium maintenance company.
