I was browsing ebay looking for a canister filter for my 20g long planted tank I am going to set up and came across this
Item number: 290474163584



It even has a UV sterilizer built into it.

Anyone have any experience with this filter?

The 302/303/304 are the old models. The 402/403/404 are the new models. The model, followed by "A" (304A, for example) is without a UV. "B" would be with a UV. In theory, you'd think the newer models would be improved, though I haven't really read anything to suggest that they're any better. I'm not knocking them - I have a 302 on my 30g that seems just about right, and has run for 7-8 months, with an inline CO2 reactor, without issue.

I *have* read complaints about the UV bulb not lasting long and being easily breakable.

I will take a look at the sun sun threads.

Hmm, perhaps I will look into the one's without the UV bulb in them. If I really wanted one I guess I could just get one after the fact.
