Thanks for the advice. I was hoping there was some beast canister that was made by a company not on the normal aquarium sites. It'd be nice to just have one to maintenance.

Yeah i just recently bought a api xp large canister filter for my 180. I tried going cheap but not to cheap and I still paid over 100$. I'm new to the canister game. I hope it has good instructions BUT from my research iv had deff read alot of good things about that fx5.
