I need help with my 404b. Its has been stopping and starting lately more and more frequently. I don't know if I just have an defective unit or if there's a short in the system. The power is still on when it stops and I know this because I can't still hear it humming and the UV light is still on. Does anyone know what can be causing this?

SunSun Pimp here too lol. well 2 50g fish tanks and a 40g turtle tank.. Lovem, for the price you cant beat, I got a 50g oscar tank from a friend of mine and he only had undergravel filter in it. I quickly ordered one of these sunsun filters and it's been up for almost a year now no problems.

Patriot I had that problem with my turtle tank and it was air being pulled into the line (not a full aquarium) check all connections I used some silicone on the suction so it would hold.

I know air isn't being pulled in because there are no bubbles coming out of the spray bar unless they're super tiny. I will check everything again just in case i missed something. I want to remove all media to see if it still does it, and if not then it's stuffed too much.

I've got mine down the back on the left side to keep water moving in the turtle tank... they are nasty little buggers. in the 40 b only could use half of the bar. the 55g the whole bar is used.

Yeah it's the same thing, just marketed as a different name.

This is my aquatop that I just got a few days ago. From what I see, it's identical.

I believe they are selling as Aquatop now.


Question for any/all of you SunSun/Aquatop owners. I'm thinking about going canister for my new 90 gallon (48x24x18) build I'm putting together.

Do y'all think this will do...AquaTop CF-500UV Canister Filter with UV9W Sterilizer - 525 gph? Or should I go with AquaTop CF-400UV Canister Filter with UV9W Sterilizer - 370 gph?

Could that be too much flow? Never owned a canister. I've read Overstocked(?)'s review...I'm cool with building my own spray bar and such. Might add an inline heater and reactor down the road...so probably the big one huh?

Any and all suggestions welcome!

Has anyone found a way to mount the spray bar vertically rather than horizontally? I have a few dead spots in my tank I am trying to eliminate by adjusting the inflow, and a vertical orientation would be great.

Would the SunSun/Perfect HW 302 be an upgrade from a fluval 105 for a 20 gallon long?

I believe so, just don't over do it on the media and it will work great.
