Once you get the hang of it, you will love your filstar! The directions stink, so if you have problems like I did setting it up, call their technical support. They are great! I have an XP2 and an XP3 on my 100 gal
. cichlid tank. They are so quiet I have to touch mine to make sure they're running. You will love the baskets for easy clean up, how easy it is to restart it, and I also read that it has an auto shut off if the motor starts to overheat. Another thing you will like which I assume applies to all canister filters is that when the power goes off, when it comes back on, your filter is right on track. I hate coming home to my tanks with HOB
filter which are all whining because the power went off & on! I think you will be very pleased!
