Well, I bit the bullet and bought an HW-302 for my 46 bow. I suspect I would have been better off with the 303's extra flow, but I do have the media box completely filled with floss, bioballs and ceramic media. Worst case, I'll remove some of the floss and see if flow picks up.
I had no issue priming or setting up the pump. The booklet that comes with the filter from China is pretty hilarious on the Engrish front, but I scored a great deal from a local seller (one day ground shipping is nice) and so far I'm pleased. It'll be running in conjunction with a large HOB until it is will cycled. Since I have yet to dirt and cap this tank, it's going to take some time.
Does this make me #86?

I'm looking to move from HOB to canister for my 46 bowfront, and I was planning to pick up a sunsun or clone from eBay after I get my next rewards certificate.
Tank has a sand bottom and houses BN plecos, among other fish - so it's a fairly high waste environment. Should I be looking at the HW302 or the HW304? I don't care much about the UV light (just another thing to break) but I'd like to ensure proper filtration and flow.
No co2 reactor at this time.

I'll take #85
put on a 403b on my 40b and LOVE it. Already did some modifications to this piping to make it more rigid and make the surface skimmer work, so far though it is wonderful.

Bottom Tray: Filter floss (Mechanical Filtration)
Middle Tray: Seachem Matrix (Biological)
Top Tray: Water Polishing floss

|stevi-d||SunSun pimp #84 here! I have the 302 that's been running for a week so far. As everyone has mentioned, this thing is dead silent! My tank is crystal clear! I have one question though. It appears that this unit filters from the bottom up, what is the best order to place the media?|

|ChuckD||SunSun Pimp #83. Been up for about a week. Digging it. Had to fight the tubes for about an hour trying to straighten them out a bit but I am guessing all canisters are like this. Do you guys somehow mount the tubes somewhere behind the tank?|

|mistahoo||SunSun Pimp #82! Although I got my SunSun gear a few weeks ago. Running 2 3200gph SunSun powerheads! Monster flow! My fish sometimes get caught up in the whirlpools in the middle of the tank. It's hilarious watching them spin. They're tough fish!|

|meppitech||Just call me SunSun Pimp #81. I have a high tech 55 gallon cycling right now. I wanted to add more water movement and some inline stuff so i went for the big boy (maybe the 304-B). I have an Eheim pro3 2071 that i thought could use a little help.|

|don.dagg||Well I guess I get to claim #80!! Yay!! I have ordered 2 of the 303B to put on my 2-55 gal tanks. Should be here in a couple of days. I am sure my danios will be happy with their new filter. Rock On Sunsun.|

Sink-tested mine today and it behaved as described:
- Priming from dry was effortless, the key being to slowly press the plunger.
- The pump is Dead Silent!
I will probably not have the aquarium set up until next weekend but this filter appears to be a good buy.

What size do I need
Hello all you sunsun pimps, I have a question for you. I am in the process of acquiring all the hardware to setup a 55g I purchased from a lady in town. I have been reading this thread and have decided to try one of these filters. My question is what size sunsun do I need to run on this size tank? I am going with a high light high tech tank. It will have a 4 bulb t5 light so can run up to 216watts of light. I am also planning on pressurized co2 with an inline reactor, either a griggs or cerges type(havent decided yet). So, any input would be great and also what are your opinions on the uv version. Should I get it or not? Thanx and I look forward to joining your ranks soon.
