New SunSun filter

After reading alot of reviews around, I bought one last week, and got it today. It was $53.99, and I'm really impressed, but then again it is my first canister filter.

It's tough to rate it as I have nothing to compare it to. It definitely is better than my HOB, it doesn't leak, and it has like 3.5 baskets. I like it, but I don't know how it would do against an eheim. From the other people who bought them, they say that it can hold its own, and some even like them better

that is AWESOME Danny! I know that for myself, I am not one of those who feel only name brands (popular) are the ONLY way to go. I have never had an eheim either lol. If the sun sun works, doesnt leak and keeps the water looking good- I'm all for it! Congrats again on your find

From what I've read, the prime does actually work as well. It does leak if I turn it upside down... but lol you should never have it upside down.

My tank isn't really "picturable" at the moment. I'm using it on a 29 gallon supposed-to-be-planted fw :P

Thanks for posting about this. I may look at them if yours does well for awhile. Thanks for volunteering to be the guinea pig!


I guess my search for the canister filter to use in space is still on....

After I get a better CO2 method going I am gonna upgrade to canister, and Sunsun is #1 on my list. Please keep us posted with any changes of opinion, mishaps, etc.

One thing I have noticed and have read, is the bottom basket tends to "stick", but I guess that's good if you want 0 bypass. Otherwise it's a great filter.
