Can't beat the price. I did not get one with an UV as I don't need it. But I do agree that is not the best.

It may not be the best but if it fits your budget, that's what matters. It can be quite expensive for new people starting up, tanks, lights, heaters, filters etc. It can always be upgraded later.....

I also agree with you . I bought a penguin 350 but I couldn't reduce the noise level from the impeller. I returned it and went for the sun sun just for $20 more. It is cheap but it servers the purpose as any other canister filter ( btw it is my first canister) .

Yeah, the marineland hobs can be a bit noisy at times. If you want to just try out canister filter and see how it does, the sun sun is definitely worth it to get it. But for the more experiences people, they usually get the better ones.

All the classics are really good and at very affordable prices. It won't let you down.

No do not use it! Just get a bag from walmart or a craft store. No additives, NO FIRE RETARDENT, 100% polyester.
