Over the course of the time I have been here, there have been multiple threads regarding canister filters.
To each one's experiences with certain brands this is what I have gathered so far......
Eheim, premium filter but may have problem obtaining parts.
Fluval, Excellent filter with minimal problems.
Aqua Nova, a good reliable filter with parts readily available.
There may be more, please chime in and give some feedback.
I personally have an Eheim as advised by my friend to buy. I have no regrets so far and my fish are happy.
I am in the stages now to set up a tank for my brother and I am leaning on going for the best bang for the buck. I am leaning on the Fluval FX5 going for $250.00 ........I think the top Aqua Nova is going for $200.00
Is there a $50.00 difference between the two? Which one do you think will last longer?
