Help canister filter died

well got up this morning a nd went to check my tank and noticed that the water level was down about 2 inches from the top and that is when I figured out that my magnum 350 canister filter had stopped luckily I keep my filters in a rubber made bin so no water was on the floor but the bin was almost full. So I am going to replace the filte to day. I am pricing filters and one of them is the marineland 360, I have never heard of this filter so i was going to see what ya'll said about it.
I have a 100 gal tank and I have an enhiem 2217 and a fluval 305 running on it right now. The 305 is only on there tp get it seeded for a 55 gal that I plan to set up.

Thanks for any help. Tess

I believe the MarineLand 360 is the same as the TetraTec EX1200? Reportedly that is a very good filter.

Hard to go wrong with the Fluval from what I've heard. I have a C-360 and love it too. Sorry for the loss but you wanted a new filter for Christmas, right?

I agree, I have two fluvals and love them. Much simpler than my eheim, and much cheaper too

Save yourself and get a Fluval FX5. You can keep the others running or use them on another tank, but you will never have to think about filtration again. I have used the Marineland C-series and I would not use one if you gave it to me. The only thing that challenges Fluvals is Eheim, so if you want to spend more for less flow/filtration go for an Eheim.
