If you wanted to mail some to me, my puffers would think you were their best buddy!

Nothing.
Haven't even turned the tank lights on today.

My allergies are going insane, I was supposed to do soo much! W/c's on the bigger tanks and ship like 6 packages of fish and plants!

That's not a bad deal if its lightly used like you say. I got a Rena xp4 last year locally on craigslist for $80 and it's good for 260 gallons but I have a turtle so half that lol. Bought a 304 on eBay a couple years ago when I was a newbie and it's still kicking. eBay is great for used filters just gotta know your price and know when a seller is sketchy

Will do! I got it from a large eBay store with great feedback (something ridiculous like 99.8%) and a 2 week return policy so I figured it was worth the risk, they run about $120 on Amazon and $150 or so at the big box stores if I remember correctly, and they said it was only used for a few months, so if everything pans out it was a steal.

Yeah, there were some similarly priced sketchy "new" ones from other sellers similarly priced, but then I saw this one sold through an eBay store and figured it was too good to pass up.
