Eheim for quiet and dependability. Rena for ease of maintenance.

You forgot they are also the cheapest to run

You can't get more easy to clean than all the eheim pro


The eheim classics are a pain

I have the Fluval 306... it's the best filter I've tried yet! Super quiet, easy to maintain, and media options are easily customizable. Keeps my water crystal clear.

I'm using a Fluval 404 on a 29 tall. It's an older model, and was an eBay purchase. As I tap, I'm literally 2 feet away, and it is virtually silent. As for the over-kill on capacity: our tank is home to a red eared slider hatchling, 11 small shiners, 4 darters, a banded sculpin and two crayfish. I haven't touched the media in four weeks, the water is clear and chemistry is perfect. (Doing 25-30% PWC every week, 10 days.)
