Fluval 404's

Just an FYI:

There were some on here a bit ago talking about the cost of canisters. Tiny's Pond World (on Ebay) has the 404 for $85 (free shipping). I run these on both my FW and SW. Cheaper than the FX5, super quiet and a work horse..

Not sure if this is where the post should go (or if I should even post it) but it's a good deal and there were people looking for a good can........ ister

If it's not, my apologies and plz remove..

Hagen Fluval 404 Aquarium Filter NIB~ FREE SHIPPING 405 - eBay (item 380047111954 end time Jul-19-08 11:52:55 PDT)

I think you got it in the right section. The 04 are last year's model, but I have to agree with you 100%. I have the 304 on my 55 and the FX5 on my 125, both awesome filters. I did notice the 05s are much easier to get open.

I believe it's up to 100 Gallons. The 304 is up to 55G.
