trying out possible replacement make/brand
I've had 1 Red Sea go bad on me so far. It kept stopping but would start back up if you spun the impeller. However, since it was so quiet/non-vibrating and since it was the desk "bowl" in my office at work, it made me a little nervous.
The LFS near my office just got in a new make & brand: "CA-100 Bio-matrics." It's the same size as the Red Sea, is just as quiet & at $9, it seems to be a good buy.
