Has anyone ever used this..?

I dont know if this has been mentioned in this forum before but has anyone ever used this filter before? :

I dont want to be the first to buy it and within 2 weeks, the motor burns out or something, so...yeah...you know...

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

EDIT:
If at first you don't succeed, FAILURE is your destiny

that is a Tom filter. You are better off getting the 501 Turlte filter. It is roughly the same price and has better flow.

Peace,

I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.

It's been discussed before. Here's a link. Try doing some other searches with the name in the title.

Good luck!

I use the Zoo Med 501 for my 20h and it works perfectly fine.

Now, if only I didn't have algae ...

Call me old-fashioned (or just old), but I'd go with a Hagen Aqua-Clear over a nano-canister.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
