I am running the xp series from Rena for the last eight years. Great filters!! Not one issue in all those years and filters are still in service at this time. Cannot say anything about Fluval, never have used one. I have three of the Rena Filstars and they are quiet, easy to maintain, great for customizing media. Wish I had bought a couple for backup years ago when the prices were down.

May all of your fish be healthy ones!!:

I was leaning toward the Rena's but I found a killer deal on a Fluval 406 so I picked that up. Thanks for the help everyone!
