I was on the SUn Sun bandwagon...until yesterday . I have a HW-302 that has only been in service for about 4 months or so . I had it running for a couple months then had health problems and had to get our of the hobby for a while....fast forward a year and I put it back in service and all was fine . It ran for about 3 months and the flow was still good , but I wanted to clean it and see just how gunky it had gotten . I clean it up , cut new Swiss Tropicals foam for it as well as replaced the other filter media . I was just starting to work on the head when I went to clean the area where the hoses connect , the ears that hold the shutoff just came off . They didn't break or snap , just kinda came off as I rubbed the connections with my finger . The plastic had turned soft and crumbly . I know it is out of warranty , but I wanted to let them know about the issue . The only site I could find for Sun Sun is in Chinese so no good to me....lol Anyway , I had a Fluval C4 to put on the tank and it will work just fine . If I ever decide to get another canister I will go with a known brand . This one was cheap enough but not to just rent for a few months .....lol Anyway , just thought I would theow that out there since it just happened .
My wife says if I get one more aquarium she is going to leave me . I sure am going to miss her fried chicken .
