Great filter

PROS
Easily primed and easy to change media.
CONS
A bit difficult to hook up hoses.
REVIEW
So far this filter is fairly quiet and has been pretty powerful. Priming it was also easy. It's a little noisy at first but after a day or two all the air bubbles work out and it quiets down.

After careful consideration and research chose the Filstar XP. Have had 2 Marineland cannister pumps in the past that worked fairly well until recently. The second one developed a leaking problem after only about 2 years. Decided to choose another brand. Set up for the Filstar XP was simple. The i...Read More

Watch out it LEAKS

REVIEW
The water leaks out at the electrical cord. The troubleshooting guid identifies the fix as the in n out water tubing must be putting too much pressure on the unit - but I keep trying to fix/adjust & nothing seems to work for more than a few hours. Anyone for water all over the floor? I didn't...Read More
