Ooh I see, so it's basically means to start the canister. I will need some help on setting the canister up if I plan to get it.

Get Rena XP1 from thatpetplace.com

they've it for $60, but Petsmart has free shipping, but then again, they'll charge you interest.

Glad to hear the Eheim is a good basic canister. I ordered the 2213 last night from petsmart.com for $67 including tax and free ground shipping.

That's like saying a BMW is a good basic car!

I heard that the Rena XP series has a built in auto-switch. Such that when the impeller gets clogged up, it will automatically switch off thereby protecting the motor. It is not publicised by the company, but according to some users, they only realised this when their filters got clogged.

It is beyond doubt that Ehiem remains the leader in external filters. But I believe that there are other brands which offer better packages at competitive prices. But word has it that its products are made in China.

I am curious about Hydor, Prime series.

Anyone use it before, and willing to give a review?
