Need a new FILTER

Hey,

I am all over the forum arent I...LOL...I need to get a new filter for my 125 currently i have a Magnum Canister but its only for a 60 or 75 and i have a HOB for a 30 gal. Running. These both came with tank and guy had been running same set up...I'm not a believer. There arent currently many fish in there and once i stock it needs to be STrong...i want to go with a canister because i know nothing about sumps...This will be a 6 ft long 125 gal, that will house Cichilids. What brand name is good...Will be buying new if i cant buy used.

Fluval and Eheim are the best you can get imo... ive got a fluval 305, a fluval 405, and a chap hob on my 150, they keep the water in good shape. Plus you can usually find them on craigslist pretty cheap

I've been toying with the Rena and Fluval thats because thats what i see at petsmart..lol...my mom and pop shop dealers are all running sumps and support that idea...i just dont know...I know the local craigslist have no listings for these canister filters..i been on there for 3 months searching...even stretched out 4 -5 hours away. no luck.....the thing with sites is that by time you pay shipping you're at the box store price...ya kno

I got my xp3 on petco.com for $139. When I buy stuff on line I google the name of the product followed by coupon. I.E. "rena coupon" or "petco coupon" you can find sites that will give you codes to input for free shipping or 10-15% off and things like that. When you check out at these sites there is a place to put in coupon codes and you just put them in and get the discount. Take your time and look around. There are deals to be had.
