Yeah, he put it behind the counter and was like get the 406, and I was like why? and hes like well you don't want one of these lol.

Whats nice about the aquatops is they are powerful and have a UV sterilizer in them, my recommendation would be to lube the seals. Unlike most canisters with 4 or 2 locking handles the aquatops have 2 locking handles and 2 pry handles and when dry you can feel the pry handles bending and if you pull to hard they will break so you need to keep pressure on them but not to much and just wait for the top to come off.

Marineland c360, aquatop, and sunsun are all made from the same mold, can't comment to what is poured to that mold but they're identical..
