Well I went to petsupplies plus first and they only had fluval aquaclear..the 70 was 49.95. So then I went down the road to Petsmart. They had C2 and C3's. But no C4's. Instead they had fluval aquaclear 70. So I asked the aquatics employee if they had any C4's in the back. He checked and no luck. Then he checked and they didn't even have a spot on the shelf for them. He said they are probably phasing them out because they didn't sell well. I didnt think that was the case and told him they seem to be really good from reviews ive seen. He said we get mixed reviews and they have some issues. I pointed out you can find the same mixed reviews on the ac70 and most are from broken parts during shipping or not enough knowledge on fishkeeping and filters. But he insisted they have issues and petsmart is probably not carring them anymore.
Anyways, the AC70 they had was on sale for $45.59. Which is about the same as the best price I found online..so thats what I got. They also had fluval air pumps on sale so I grabbed a Q1 with the 2 outlets for $27.59.
Even though they didnt have the C4, overall I'm happy with what I picked up today. And excited to get it all set up. Only need to order my Current sat + led
light now. A local place carrys them but at 110 dollars for the 18". Almost 40 dollars more than online.
