I also had the portable that Carey talks about. Recently upgraded to the BRS 5 because the replacement filters for the portable have gone through the roof. The 20 something replacements were going to cost me 54 as of a week ago. Got the BRS 5 and bought a set of replacement filters. The replacement kit was only 30 bucks. The BRS unit makes my portable look like a toy. The BRS unit is super simple to install and use. Best buy I ever made for my salt tanks.

May all of your fish be healthy ones!!:
