  1. top notch filtration that roesnt cost a fortune Review by Bill
    Your Rating

    I've had marineland and sunsun and I wish I had started with the fx5 fluval. So far this is the best canistrr I've owned. I have a 120 with 2 of them and really only need one to make the water crystal clear. This canister is the easiest one you will ever use and is a no mess canister to do weeky cleaning. Best part is you remove it from your cabinet empty when cleaning. Its a breeze and pads are cheap. Wont buy anything else ever. Value pats had a good price and very fast and reliable shipping. Thank you value pets . (Posted on 8/18/13)
