Looks like they are trying to compete with the Eheim pro 3 electronic series!
I can't see these being big sellers over here with the economy and all, they look pretty but 340.00 for a filter with a measly 160 some odd GPH?
You know us planted tank folk like higher flow rates
All of the other stuff is useless for me, a reminder to do service or a water change??? LOL any serious fish keeper knows when to do that! And who are they marketing here? the casual newb?? no way.
I would love to see some final reviews when this thing hits! Thanks Orlando...
it's funny the practical fish keeping article talks about how pretty and shiny it is then immediately after says it's small enough to fit INSIDE most cabinets lol well if it works as good as it looks it should be a trick filter but i agree with Mott i think all the gadgets are pretty useless but we'll see thanx for looking out Orlando!
People pay premium dollars for Amano's filters, do they not? I think like any product, this one will have it's niche. That niche is probably not for the DIY'er's. Think about it, how long ago was it that you thought $280 for a Tek light was outrageous! (I still do, although I dream of owning it).
