Canister!?!?!?! Need Advice
So my 2217 came into my LFS today and they called to tell me it was in, however they also mentioned that it was damaged during shipping and the actual canister part was cracked, or something on it was broken, so they returned it and said i can try again or i can get a refund, i opted for a refund. Filter i'm talking about is an ehiem 2217, ment for my 40.
Today i went to petsmart to pick up some more pellets and there i saw a fluval 206, as well as a lot more, i'm actually consiering getting one, whats your guys take on this? should i go for it? i would be paying $119 for a 206 as opposed to like $150 for a 2217. I know the common complaint about the hoses but i dont plan on really moving it to different tanks and such so there wouldn't be a ton of stress on the hoses.Also my local hardware store probably carries similar sized hoses and such, Petsmart also carries a lot of replacement parts.
Thanks in advance
