Cannister Filter

So, I got a job! Yay for me! Thinking about grabbing a canister filter for my tank! Any recommendations? I thought I saw a good one brand new on Ebay for about 100 bucks.

Yay for you! Congrats! I have a Fluval 306 for my 46g & I love it. I have no experience with any other ones so can't compare it.

I agree Eheim or Fluval but they are pricy you might find some used ones Eheim Pros the Maintenance is a little easier then the Eheim Classics bc the classic has no trays for Media that's why I went with Fluval easier Maintenance,if i didnt get the fluval as a gift from my wife i would have went with Eheim

I thought you needed at least 4 to 5 times the size of your tank in filtration?

I know everyone here recommends eheim but I have one of them and four cascade's I've had to replace the impeller on the eheim twice and the cascades kept running.

The eheim seems to be a good quality filter but since I've had the problem I had I don't think I would buy another one.

But again this is just my experience, yours may vary. (disclamer)

I use the eheim as my spare, I use dual cascades on both aquariums.
