I've had both filters- an Eheim 2231, I believe and a Fluval 104...The Eheim was the best of the two- easy to set-up, very quick to clean and maintain, and it was SILENT...The Fluval is also good, silent, but a pain in the *** to set up correctly...the Eheim was a breeze- I recommend the Eheim!

i wanted a eheim filter. they seem to be the best. some models even pulsate the out put like a wave maker.they are very high though so i ended up with a rena filstar xp3. im really suprised at how well it works and lots of media storage. simple to clean. cant beat 90 bucks at bigalsonline.com jmo

The new design on the Fluval is great ..........they work well and have more media capacity(402) than the Eheim Pro II. Eheims get great reviews but are costly. The Rena Filstar XP-3 is getting good write on it. Try looking into them too.

AquaClears are very good but you have to keep the water level up otherwise the salt creep starts up from the water splash. Media capacity is limited too but they are great for running carbon or Phosguard.

Good luck.
