I don't recall the specs on my ehiem other than it is rated for 90 gallons. It cost me $250. Ordering online is great but I've found (since I'm in Canada) not alot of places ship here so I'm stuck paying the price. I've found some wicked deals online but in Canada they are unavailable alot of the time.

I use Rena XP canister filters, I really like them. The are very dependable, and very easy to service. I also second everyone's opinion about buying on line. Amazon has aquarium products for almost less than half what you will pay elsewhere. It is very easy to return defective items also, just a few questions on line and you print a return label and ship it back free

Canister filters wouldn't come with the pipes and stuff that you need or do they?

They almost always include everything you need to have it up and running

So I bought an eheim 250 classic. I was going to buy the 150 at first but then I asked how much the next one up was. She said the 150 was for 89.99 and the 250 was 99.99

I have a Rena and wouldn't change it for the world. I absolutely love it. It's quiet and keeps my tank clean. Minimal cleaning of the filter housing and media makes it even better.

Personally, I never let money dictate my filter choice. And yes, we're on a budget like most everyone else. When you figure that this little piece of machinery helps keep your pets alive, it's worth whatever you need to pay to get the right equipment for your tank setup and stock.
