Fluval 404 vs. Magnum 350

I'd love to hear preferences/stories. If you like another canister better, tell me about it, too. I'm in the market .

-Thanks!

If your going for quality I would go with the fulval..
If your going for the most bang for your buck go for a Jebo/Odyssea

I have the Fluval 404 and it has exceeded all of my expectations. here's some pics:

Go with the fluval. I've had mine for years and I love it. It holds alot of media and is easy to clean.

I had a magnum and a fluval side by side about 4 years ago. The fluval was much easier to deal with, IMO.

ahem...*cough* filstar XP *cough*

Maintenence is a breeze with the quick disconnect and it's currently on sale at drsfostersmith.com, the xp3 is about the same price as the magnum 350 ($86.19) and $40 cheaper than the fluval 404.

I had a Magnum for about an hour. I took it out of the box, looked it over, and returned it.

Ditto on the Filstar XP. I have had an XP3 for a long time. I love it. It is quiet, easy to service, and very effective.
