Thinking about making my first canister a Sunsun. What are opinions about the built-in UV option vs. buying a stand alone unit. I would think a stand alone UV would be better as you could move it from tank to tank as needed. Your thoughts?
I agree with you farmhand. I have heard some people mention that the lights are nice to have internally, but I have also heard that the plastic the filter is made of isn't resistant to UV and could degrade over time.
I need a new filter for a tank in my living room and the other half will DESTROY ME if it makes any noise.
I am running 2 of them on my 120 in my living room and dont even hear them unless an air pocket gets trapped in one but that is almopst never and when it does happen I just push the primer button or tilt the filter to let it out
