find a site that you dont think is reliable and then go to big als and see if their price is higher so u can price match to a reliable site, what size tank do you have?

right now i have a 15gal but wil be upgrading to a 40gal.

It is also planted with CO2 injection, so i'm trying to reduce surface distrubances.

I remember wanting to get this filter a few months ago until I found out that it was discontinued and that the manufacturer was no longer supporting it. That is why there are a lot of really cheap ones out there.

It is cheap enough that it is worth trying, but a bit of a risk if you have problems with it.

You also have to look at it this way. It is $40 for the filter but then another $40 for shipping so with that you could get a great name brand one from BigAlsOnline..

Re: Filter Experience

Personally I have had bad luck with "Jebo" products. I had tried some of their lighting and one failed 2 weeks into use. The seller on EBay as well wouldn't do anything "No warranty" he said.

I'm off using EBay for anything due to this type of bad experience. I would go with the last recommendation and purchase something either from Big Al's or locally if you need it faster. You will be happier with a quality product since the old adage definitely applies here.

I currently run three of the Cascade canister filters. They are nice units and very flexible.
