I picked up a Rhinox 5000 3 days ago from the same store. There have been some good reports on it so I am keen to give it a try once it gets delivered.

Mark.

i got one of the spiral bells from that place along with a nano one. the spiral one works great but requires a bit of pressure so i had to run two bottles of diy on it, i think it has something to do with me getting the 8spiral bell.

the nano i havent recieved yet so i cant tell you how that one works.

Don't worry about it. I'm not serious about getting one- just one of those "if it stays cheap, I might bid" kind of things.

Yea thanks Thats my bid there Werner, don't worry it won't stay cheap i've big on numerous ones, and the cheapest i've seen one go is $20 + the shipping. Last one I lost because my high bid was $19, lol.

I figure eventually I'll get one to try out, but am unwilling to pay the "Buy it now price" yet, as don't quite want it that bad for $36 [including shipping].

And I'm just kidding about the posting it, it's ebay people are bound to find it, and it wont stay at its current price once the final day comes along.

I've been using the 5000 on a 90 gallon planted and a 1000 on a 6 gallon nano tank for a month with very good results. As you have probably already noticed, it is a very good price and you won't have any issues with the seller. He is very good. You may want to ask him about the pressure resistant tubing he carries and other CO2 accessories. He has other pieces that are not always on his EBay site or Aquabid. Good luck with whatever you decide. Darrell
