I've heard that you should have a 10x turnover rate for power filters, but what about canister filters? I only have experience w/ power filters, so what rate should I have for canisters?

For big Serras like Rhom a 10 x / hour turnover rate is fine.

For Pygocentrus piranhas the turnover rate is not so important (3-4 x / hour will do fine), but then again the capacity of canisters bio media is important factor.
