Canister filter actual heights?

Anyone with any of these filters that can measure and provide the ACTUAL height including hose connectors?

I have exactly 18” under my tank. Anything taller and I’d have to cut a big notch in the shelf, which I don’t want to do. 65 gallon tank, but I’d like to get a filter rated for 150, doesn’t seem likely though.

Fluval 306/7, 406/7
Cascade 1000, 1200
Jebao 404
Seapora AM 60
Aqueon Quietflow 75
Marineland Magniflow 100/360
Hydor 350
Eheim Classic 66gal or 92gal
API XP - M or L

Any other suggestions are welcome. Looking for 18” total height max, and preferably designed for 100+ gallon tank.

Two Cobalt EXT filters would fit and are rated for 55 gallons each. Plus, they’ve very easy to maintain. I know you are looking for one filter, but this is an alternative.

Wouldn’t be a bad idea if I could find a deal on two. At $120 each i’d be nearly at the price of a Fluval FX4

Cascade is 18" with the "spouts" on. You'd have to cut a notch with them.

I didn't realize the price was so high. A few years ago, they were going for about $80 on Amazon.

The 1000 or 1200? Or both?
