I tried a HOT Magnum on my 30 g tank. It was too powerful, churned
the surface, blew my plants horizontally, and created a lot of air
bubbles. I took it out after a week and gave it to a friend with a
saltwater tank. He uses the micron filter without diatoms and is
very happy with it, doesn't mind that it blows bubbles all over the
place. As I recall, it was rather noisy too. I'm much happier with
the Renaissance canister filter.
