Pros: Variety of available media, compact, water shutoff valve system easy to use, flow easy to control.
Cons: Difficult to prime/start at times, difficult to carry full.

My Fluval 204 is doing very well for my 50 gallon bowfront. I am using purigen in the top basket, biomax is the middle, and carbon on the lower basket. It works quickly to clear water and has an easy to use flow system to control flow from the filter. I find it moderately easy to clean. There are times i have a difficult time getting it started after cleaning and have sometimes primed until my arm is about to break off. The LFS informed me to fill to thte tippy top and then plug in and tip toward the impeller, which works (contrary to the directions). I would buy another fluval 204.
