Can't go wrong with an Eheim. I don't think I'll ever use another filter. Once I switched from a HOB to a canister, the improvement in water quality was tremendous. Some purigen in the filter helps polish and keep my water crystal clear.

Thanks for all the help!

Stick to the Fluval, you can't go wrong.
