Well it does cost more. The marineland is 190 and the fx5 is 233. Or atleast these are the best prices I've found on them so far. I know the fx5 has a good rep, but my lfs (a good one) reco'd the marineland and said it's easier to get replacement parts...so I'm torn. I can't find an eheim cheap enough so at this point I'm just trying to choose between the two. This will cost more than anything I've ever purchased for any of my tanks so I'm just feeling a little indecisive.

I felt that way about my 305, but it was the best move I made and happy I did. Like it so much I want one for my 37g tall, but will hold off if I can convince my GF to upgrade that one to a 55 or 75 so my Moors can really open up .

Instead of my plan to do a 29g SW, I'd do a 37g SW of course lol.

If you want to save a buck go to ebay and look at the sunsun filters. They are decent filters and are wildly cheap.

This is no shining endorsement but friends of mine bought 2 of the aquatraders canisters for like $50 each. They seem a tad louder than my fluvals but my buddies rave about them.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
