Fluval FX5 or Ehiem pro3 160

Ive only had my FX5 for 1 month and the motor stopped working. Should I get an Eheim Pro 3 ultra 160 or stick with a new FX5??? I'm torn.

Truaqua Cannister

I just got one of these "china cannisters" from truaqua.com and it is not the monster it has been made out to be. Performs excellent at a fraction of the cost of others. My customer service experience with them was excellent too. I guess it all boils down to what you want to spend to get the same job done.

Check them out: www.truaqua.com
