Aqua clears made by Hagen = Hagen products are pretty good. But since switching to eheim canister filters I will stay with using eheim from here on out.

I hear ya! For the last 20 years the basics haven't changed only the products

I like to K. I. S. S. it just make this less geeky and more enchanting
Aquaclear; I like the ease of maintaining and cleaning them. You cab get them on Amazon for the best price my 110's which filter 500 gallons an hour were $51 when I bought them compared to say Petsmart which is like $70.

I tend to be a Keep-it-simple sort of guy and I had good luck with a 110 FOWLR that utilized 2 HOB skimmers and 2 Fluval canister filters. I had 150lbs of live rock, stocked the tank fairly lightly and I was very happy with the result.
I moved and I am now setting up a new tank with the same plan: HOB skimmers and canister filter. My personal take is that the key is to have a good amount of live rock and avoid over-stocking - but that's just my 2 cents

I went the wet-dry route. I have live rock gravel below the mechanical filter pads. Have a large skimmer in the sump and about 150lbs of live rock in the tank. Working great and all readings are good.

I have to upload my pics of my equipment, but here is a link to my FOWLR webpage (still under construction). It contains model numbers of all the equipment I am running. Hope this helps while I upload images of my filter.

You modified the proclear 300? If so could you show pictures? I would like to do the same thing so any info you can provide would be grateful.

You can see the live rock gravel on the left bottom. The sump to the right has my skimmer, heater and pump.
