| | Help choosing new filtration system?
I'm starting another 40 gal breeder planted tank. I have pretty much everything except a filter system. On my first tank a bought a Aquatop canister filter from one of the lfs. It has been doing fine for the past several months. Quiet and no leaks so far. I think it's discontinued. I've been looking at canisters on Amazon (polar, sunsun, etc.) the reviews aren't bad, however, there are enough reviews, on all of them, having to do with weak parts, small leaks, all the way up to catastrophic leaks. I see that aquatop has a newer line on their web page. I don't want to go cheap, but I would like to get something reliable and economical at the same time. All without paying the extra dollars for a name. Cause some of the bigger names are getting some of the same reviews.
Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
