I just ordered the gosh dang fx5. I didn't really realize initially that's it's for up to 400 gals. How could I order one for 150 gals to save 43 bucks..that wouldn't make sense. Plus if I ever upgrade his tank I can keep the same filter and still have triple filtration. Haha right now he's gonna have like septuple filtration

It comes up to my knees. It is a monster. Cleaning it isn't too bad though. Try to run the drain to a hose so you can move it out easier. I still have to get one so I have to lift mine full of water. lol

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

Sweeet!

If I can convince my family to let me swap out the 37g tall for a 55-75g tank, I'm gonna be right behind you.

Good read, I'll keep following along. I have a close friend that is looking into a canister.

We just bought the Marineland C530 last month, April 5th 2011, at BigAlsOnLine for $189 with at $20 mail in rebate.

Within two hours the water had lost it's greenish tint, free floating particles gone but left the old Eheim 2222 running until the new filter established itself.

It's a big filter, 12.5 x 12.5 x 20 high!
