I have read good things about Fulva. I have never owned though; so I won't really be able to tell you the pros and cons. Fluval 306 is rated for 70 GPH.

Amazon.com: Fluval 306 External Filter: Pet Supplies

This is what I have at home and it has been working for 9 years now. XP-L I think is rated for 100 GPH. But just like any canister filter the GPH will drop some when you fill it with media.

Might buy fluval. It is too expensive for me to get api filter. And probably gonna buy 45 gallon filter which is cheaper.

Let me know how it works if you do. I like to try and stay local if possible and the mom and pop store where I bought my xp3 from closed down 5 years ago. So if my xp3 quits on me one day my only option is petco and they carry fluval.

That model has a 4.5 star rating out of 5. I run a smaller model that does 100 gph and i love it it does a great job and it is well constructed.
