Penn Plax Cascade Canister Filters

Anyone here had any good or bad things to say about these canister filters? I just wanted something to run carbon through, so I bought a 1200. Says for 150 gallons, and I have a 180 and about a 70 gallon sump. But I am not relying on it for filtration really, have plenty of rock and sand, and a DSB and extra rock in my sump, and an old Fluidized bed filter I could hook up. It is a FOWLR tank, but I think this will be ok just to run maybe filter floss and carbon in for this size tank, right?

Woo Hoo, PAYDAY! Time to pay the LFS rent (even before I pay mine )

I think that filter would move plenty of water for what you are doing, But for a little better you might want to got with the 1500 @ big al's for only $120.00. But that 1200 should be plenty. Hope this helps.
