Id go with the XP L. Its does 350gph which is plenty depending on how many fish you habe. Petsmart sells it and they can price match. Just take your phone in the store and scan the barcode of what you like and then show them the price and booooom! Cheap filter with "in your hands" shipping


Here you go. At petsmart
http://m.petsmart.com/mt/www.petsmar.../addToCart.jsp

Its way cheaper online. Do the price match and show them. We do it at my store daily

FX-5 came with a complete set up I purchased off CL, so I was very lucky, 72G oceanic bowfront w/matching stand and all the decos, sand and fx5 Aqueon water changer, chemicals, foods, etc., like new, for $200! Very lucky!

If you clean the gunk out of where the impeller is, you can use a tweezer to get the impeller out if it, if it is hard to get out, it probably will work fine. Q-tip out the sludge!

You can add a second filter pad in there and build up double the BB.

This guy came to petsmart a few days ago and spent 750 $ for a full 46g bowfront setup. Fish filters decore gravel and ALL. He came back 2 hours later and spent 160 $ and came back the next day and spent another 200 $ all for a bowfront

WOWWWWWWWWeeeeeee! That is the kind of customer you want and me too so I can buy it when his fish die and he doesn't want it anymore!!! Great to know about the price matching too btw!

Dubs, used filters will work well too just clean and use new pads.

If your looking for a good hob filter I would recommend the fluval C4. I think petsmart has it for under 60 bucks.
