The 250 HOT does have a micron filter and uses a bonded sleeve in the same fashion the 350 does. The optional biowheel is nice, but if it's going to be a mobile filter for cleaning up tanks, I don't see the point of the biowheel. I run a 350 with the two biowheels on a 29 gallon, using the micron filter. It's somewhat humorous to me that for full time operation, according to the manufacturer, you're supposed to use the media container filled with carbon.... if you're going to do that, imo, you might as well just get a regular canister filter that actually holds some media ( and different types of media), then have a 250 HOT for quick polishing.
