Sunsun is fine. I'd go for the big boy, think it's the 404?? Something with 500+ gph. If you can afford it? An ac 70 hob as well.

I have 2, they're fine.. just have to handle them with baby hands.. impatience and brut strength will surely result in a broken sunsun.. they're cheap but they work.

Hmmm ok then seems like the aquatop filters are just better quality sunsun so I might do those they're only like 20 dollars more and guess they have uv and have the sponges and whatnot included

I don't like them I was shown them once and I told the guy at the LFS that they felt cheap and I didn't think the handles would hold up so he gets it out to show me a second time... and snaps the handle off lmao
