API XP Canister Filter

Excellent product would buy again. I would get the best hose clamps that would be available locally. The plastic ones that come with the filter are not secure. There is no noise from the filter at all! The only reason for the 4 is that the hose clamps are iffy at best. I will buy this again for the rest of my tanks. I especially like the 4 tray filter options.

Happy fish

After careful consideration and research chose the Filstar XP. Have had 2 Marineland cannister pumps in the past that worked fairly well until recently.

Parts came as advertised. Start up was a breeze. Pump is very quiet....

Works Great..

This works GREAT!! Got the 75 gallon unit for my Red Ear Sliders and it works well for keeping thier nasty tank clean. Ordered a second for the fish tank.. Only issue that keeps it from 5 stars is that it can be tough to prime. Ignore the directions, and put the pickup in the water. will save you a mess and lots of frustration.

Watch out it LEAKS

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 think so.

Great filter at a great price

I bought my filter back in July of 2007 and it has been running strong for almost 5 years now. I love this filter. Easy to prime (have only had to do it the one time and never again after cleaning), never had any leaks, very quiet (I put mine on an old mouse pad to quiet it even more but it IS a very quiet filter). Well made, seals well, keeps the aquarium very clean, easy to clean and change...
