I have seen a few people mention them and how cheap they are, which they are, does anyone have any long term experience with one, is it worth the cheapness of it, would this one be powerful enough to handle a 55 gal, any other concerns with them.

also how was your buying experience if you purchased one from catalinaaquarium.com

thanks,

yea i noticed that as well, that it doesnt take the eheim sized filter pads, but i was going to cut my own anyway, getting a big sheet of filter pad is cheaper than precut ones..

Catalina Filters

I got a catalina filter off ebay and it was great it ran just like a eheim. I was so impressed with it that I bought another one after about 6 months the first one started leaking from the primer. The second one did the same thing at 6 months to and I could not find a oring replacement so I trashed them both
