Here's my thought: $80 for a canister that will be dead silent and do the job with periodic maintenance and fantastic results.. I'm all in. I bought a very similar one for my 36g bow (brackish puffers).
I also like it for the flexibleness it gives me.. I had 2 fish die on me (got killed by a big albino BN pleco) and saw no ammonia or nitrite spike.
For me, it's worth it. For others, that's your decision
