I did a search and couldn't find much.

I am thinking about buying a canister filter (ca1000) by Catalina. However, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with their filtration products? Are they any good? Should I cough up the extra 20-50 dollars and get another eheim?

Thanks!:)

For $20 or so extra, buy the Eheim.
Multi decade old Eheims are still running and parts are available.

If you were looking at the Chinese knock offs, at half the price of an Eheim, I'd caution you about parts. Particularly the impeller shaft. Recently I've read that hobby shop 3/32" metal rod works in some of the knock offs - after the ceramic shaft breaks.
