Eheim also have great filters but tend to be a bit more expensive. They are brilliant filters and tend to last longer than most others. I don't have either but have read many posts on both and they are both highly regarded amongst fellow members. I would suggest, when people recommend a filter brand/model, do a bit of research yourself and see if it fits your needs, size, cost, flow-rate, replacement media/parts etc. You will get some great advice in no time. Good luck with whatever you choose.... Ian
Thank you for the welcome and response.
I,ve ended up going for a JBL Cristalprofi i100 after much research.
I have to say I,m impressed so far, it has a 4 year warranty, interchangeable parts and a good range of different filter materials which are not too pricey.
Best of all it is really quiet!
I,ve noticed a big difference in the tank already. It really shows how badly the old filter has been performing!
