is this a good deal for a wet/dry system

i found one of these on CL for 60 bucks
http://www.futurepets.com/cgi-bin/F...RTNUM=ACA207510

its rated for a 75 gallon tank, but mine is 100. its most likely gonna be just live rocks and a porcupine puffer, will this filter suffice?

here is a pic of it:


can someone tell me if this is a good deal? is that thing a sump on its own or will i have to place it in one or is it hang on back?

also its rated for a 75 gallon tank, but mine is 100. its most likely gonna be just live rocks and a porcupine puffer, will this filter suffice?

I would jump up to the 150 model. I have the Pro 150 and am happy with it. I did remove all the bioballs and replace them with LR rubble.

yea but the 150 new would be around 300 where-as i can get this one for 60. anyone know whether it would work on my 100 gallon tank or if i would run into problems? what if i added a hang on back filter or skimmer or something?

The one thing everybody told me was do not skimp on equip. I only skimped on 1 or 2 things but wouldn't you know it, I bought the same piece of equip. twice.

It is usually rec. to always go one size bigger for most equip. as well.
