I've got a marineland 200 on a 29 gallon tank and a 150 on a 20 gallon and love them both. Really like the 2 media slots on the 200 to add media or use the 2nd slot to use the filter to cycle a new tank.

I'm not a big fan of the Tetra whisper. The one I had at one time seemed kinda cheap. But that's just one man's opinion

I beg to differ on the tetra whispers. My parents had a 20g setup back in 1989 or so and had it ran for prob 4 or 5 years with a tetra whisper. It got tore down and put in the basement. Last year I went to my parents and got the tank and everything for it and set it up and the filter still worked, and is def quiet. Now since I've upgraded tanks, the took the 20g back and are currently using it with the same filter

I don't see why people buy tank kits then throw out the filter it comes with and replaces it with a "good" filter. I just use my Aqueon QuietFlow 20 and replace my cartridges every month. It does a good job and I've never needed to reboot it because it's been "stuck"

What about them sponge filters that you easily just squeeze out beneficial bacteria to cycle other tanks? What about them eh

I love aquaclear. I have had tetra whisper and I didn't like it. On my old 10 g they kept breaking when wee would have peer outages (2 broke) and they one that came with my 20 g didn't clean as well as the aquaclear. (this is just my opinion I know sow people like tetra... I am not one of them)
