The best depends on what you want to accomplish in your system. Best to learn about all the different types of filtration and pick the one that you like best for your intended purpose.

Ok I'm looking for opinions from the experience you each have had with your filters.

Please share!

What style filter do you want? I've gone canister and have a fluval 405 and a eheim 2217 and am far more impressed with the eheim and will not go back to a fluval filter again and keep with the eheim actually am buying two more eheims for freshwater tanks.

I had a fluval about 15 yrs ago on a 55g FO. I didn't like how hard it was to change carbon, etc. it was tough to get it to seal right. I also didn't like the tubing connections into the top of it. After my cat got in the stand and knocked the discharge tube out and drained the entire tank onto my bedroom floor (rental apartment, no less) I never bought another fluval. I'm liking my wet/dry sump on my current tank.
