@Sushant, will there be issue if canisters are kept at a same level?
I am unaware of it, and if any issue then can shift it to middle layer :)

As long as the surface level of water is above the filter it should be fine, but keeping the filter below the tank would be better.

I am also not aware with this issue. Once I kept the canister filter over the tank. But I felt there was no issue of performance.

sorry for getting slightly off topic Abhishek bhai, but what material is best for making aquarium racks, wood or steel?
I keep my tanks on a wood rack but after several years its starting to give out, its molding very badly and I have to make a new one sooner or later.
I thought steel but steel will rust too. Thoughts.

I have read it in several forums, here is the reference from my Fluval's manual.
