I'm considering swapping out my AC
110 and Aqueon 55 HOB
filters for one large, powerful, canister filter in my 55G African Cichlid tank.
There's an ad on Craigslist for the Odyssea CFS 700, a canister filter that supposedly has a flow rate of 700 gph
(though I very highly doubt that), and a built in 9W UV
sterilizer. I've been able to find some reviews of the Odyssea CFS 500 over on the plantedtank.net forums, and most of the reviews were rather positive, but as of yet, I haven't been able to find anything on the CFS 700 (and also those positive reviews were back in 2009).
Does anyone have any experience with these filters? Either the CFS 500 or the CFS 700? The asking price on both craigslist and ebay is $90, and I'd imagine I could talk the guy on craigslist down some.
Oh and I know it's probably way overkill for a 55G, but I like to overdo things when it comes to filtration.
