SunSun Filters are great bang for the buck. After my review and finding some folks here that have SunSun's, I think it is time for a SunSun pimp club.

To join please post here and put your this in your sig!

SunSun Pimp #(your number here). I will slowly update the original post to reflect this.

To discuss the SunSuns(don't bash them here, head over to the review/discussion in my sig for that!)

What are you using for lighting in this setup?
funny enough sunsun 2x 39w powerglo type lights
the only thing i dont have is sunsun fish :D

the setups been really good actually old style overhead trickle but loads of room for media
i got the whole setup delivered from ebay for £299
including sunsun stand and hood
plus all the plumbing 1 powerhead 200w heater light unit and 1ltr media ceramic and carbon

the stands pants and the hood drips every now and then so you have to adjust the spray bar in the overhead filter but in general its a bargain compared to the big pet store deals on a 4ft

I just got the 303B. I have a question this filter is going on a 72 gal bow front tank. I am not sure where the spray goes how far from the surface should it be.

I have mine pointed down, straight down. I have the intake at one end and the spray bar at the other.

Does SunSun have a canister rated in between the 250 gph and the 530 gph? The former is not enough for me, and the latter is too much (and too tall probably)!

The SunSun 303 & 303B are both rated for 369 GPH 1400 LPH. The 303B has a built in 9w u.v. lamp. It has an external on/off switch so you don't have to use it if you don't want to. It great to have when you need it. I bought mine here CANISTER Aquarium FILTER + 9W UV Sterilizer Free Media - eBay (item 160390583311 end time Jan-27-10 22:19:14 PST)

Thanks!

I like the black, but... is this a SunSun? The info is a bit ambiguous. I especially like:
"The pump head is designed apart and fixed to the canister by two big ouches."

I emailed seller for more info. Not much in the description.

EDIT: i was referring to Archer's post.
Thanks for your info as well RLee!

I just got mine today and yes it is a SunSun and it even comes with some minor directions, I got mine 7 days after it shipped. I hope to have it running tonight or first thing in the morning. I havent cleaned my smaller one and its been running for just over a month I think and still no noticeable reduction in flow.
