Advice on best filter system please

I am replacing my fiter/pump assembly as my biolife filter is now obsolete & I can't get the filter replacements from it any more. Also the pump has become noisey & I want to replace it before it packs up completely.
I have a 250 litre (4 foot) tropical tank.
I have been recommended by Hagen the Flugal 4+.
Any further advice please?

Personally, I love the redesigned fluvials. I have a 304 on my 55G and the FX5 on my 125.

PS I removed your other identical post.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

You can certainly go with a fluval 404 or 405. I have several fluvals. I also have a Xp3 which is also easy to use and quite effective. I think finding good deals on either cannister should be quite easy. You might even be able to find a good used one locally.

I like using xp3, but I am like you, where I live it is getting hard and hard to find stuff for the xp3 and would probably be easier just upgrade to fluval 404. Which I also heard Fluval is a good cannister filter too. But the xp3 are easy to maintain and very quite.
