I saw you have a 55g but what are you stocked with? I have a Fluval 406 on my 75g and absolutely love it. I got it in the beginning of 2012 and just a few months back replaced the impeller cover and impeller (got the kit on amazon for like $25). Absolute workhorse and no leaks or issues. Restarts fine after power failures, which is fairly common for me, something I struggled with when I used AquaClear HOB filters. I personally love having an inline heater so less stuff in the tank. Much cleaner looking with only an intake and outflow in the tank.

Best of luck!
Thank you for the information. I do have the Fluval up and running in my tank now and so far I absolutely love it. I currently have 4 Giant Danios and 6 Albino Cats in the tank. I am taking the process extremely slow but I am working up to a total of 8 Giant Danios, 6 Albino Cats, and 3 Angel Fish
