Thx. I have been doing a lot of reading, and assuming the canister does what it is advertised to do, then QUIET is a special concern since this will be in my living room, which is very formal, so the last thing I want is a noisy filter. So any experience in that realm is appreciated.

(It seems odd to me that some brands advertise how quiet they are and other mention it . . . not at all.)

tps

Thx. This tank will be in the front of the house in a formal living room, so assuming the canister does what it is advertised to do, QUIET is really important. Any thoughts/experience there? (It is odd that some advertise how quiet they are, but others are silent on the subject.)

tps

I have 2 large tanks in my living room, with 2 XP-3's on each tank, and they are absolutely silent. Mine are under the tank in a cabinet stand.

Do you guys/gals thinks one Rena XPXL (450 gph), is sufficient for a 135-gallon tank, or do I need two units, and if I need two, what sizes would you recommend?

Thx in advance.
