Dophin vs SunSun

Postby jaganidishant » Fri Feb 26, 2016 9:17 am

Hello, After much research looking for a canister filter suitable for a 24X12X15 tank have narrowed my choices down to dophin(dolphin) or SunSun and not ehiem due to budget constraints .kindly provide with suggestions and reviews of the products .I know its not suitable for long term and ehiem has many advantages above these Chinese alternatives but as mentioned ,budget is a problem. Options are:-

dophin cf300 1800rs
Sunsun 302 - 3800rs
Sun Sun HW-603 B 2000rs

Thank you.

I am using dophin cf300 in my 28lit tank and sunsun 302 on 80lit tank.I would say quality of doohin is better but sunsun is also good.302 would be suitable for your tank size.btw from where you got those price list?
Thanks

Sunsun 603 will be way below capacity (it is meant for 20 G).

Go for Sunsun 302 from Indian aquarium. Will cost you around Rs 2.5 K.
They told me they can arrange the parts easily for Sunsun as it is getting more & more popular in India & US & other places.

From reports dophin runs longer than sunsun and people have used it for years without any havoc. and KW marketing does bring out good products at affordable costs.

Your tank volume is 72L approx.
Sunsun 603B has max 400L output
Dophin cf300 has max 410L output
Sunsun 302 has max 1000L output.

It is generally suggested to have 10x flow for good circulation and filtration. Now canister capacity/output should be your primary concern before deciding and not the price alone, IMO. And remember max output is at ideal conditions like height, canister clogging etc.
