I recentlypicked up a 75g corner tank & the box of accessories that came with it seems to have a Magnum 350 & Magnum 330 in it (going to have to download manuals to make sure all the parts are there) Anyone have any personal experience info they can give me on either of these?
I've got one that is 20+ years (220 model) and I love it, it is a true work horse. It's tough to find some of the proper sized filter sleeves, gaskets etc. but there is plenty of part out there for them. Cleaning is fairly easy, I would definitely pick up a set of ball valves and make like a DIY eheim setup so as to not have to re prime the system every time you crack it open for cleaning.
They can get a little noisy, but thats just them asking to be cleaned IME.
Got any pics of them?
