re: Canister filters

Please be careful if the Magnum 220 has an impeller
moter as does the Magnum 350.

Impeller motors, at least the way they are implemented
in the 350 can malfunction when snails find their way into
the filter ...  and they are very adept at this.

Once into the impeller, they can cause it to fail; if the
filter is the only method of aeration, you can suffucate
all your fish.

Do others have an opinion about impeller motors in a planted
tank?  What do the Eheim and Fluval use for circulation?
