An excellent choice

I purchased my fluval 405 approx. 6 months ago for my 90 gal heavily planted aquarium. Prior to selecting this specific filter I reviewed many mixed customer reviews online. I read many minor negative things such as leaking seals poor and cheap engineering. .... I disagree completely. The engineering is very simple and practical. The filter is easy to clean and I don't hear it working at all...

Best filter I've used

I have had this filter set up for over a year on a 55gal african cichlid tank, and have had no problems at all. I change media about once a month or so and add water as needed.

So far Fluval is AWESOME!!!

I have only had this filter for about 48 hours but if it continues to run this quietly I may have to switch all of my filters to canisters.....Though I may have to max out a credit card to do so. I used to use only marineland penguin BIO-wheels but I went through two 200s in under a year, for some reason they both just stopped.?. So far I love this filter!!! By far the quietest I have ever seen!!!

I can see we'll be buying parts all the time to replace broken ones. Overall it is not user friendly, difficult to do any changes with it, hard to get it primed and running proper when done changing filters. I will not...

fluval 305

I bought the Fluval 305 for my 55 gallon tank about 6 years ago. It just keeps going and keeps the tank crystal clear. Once you get the hang of taking it apart when cleaning it..its a breeze. And yes with the 305 you do need something to help you gently pry it open but hey...a good seal is good thing in my book....no water on my floor EVER. Today was the first time it stopped working...
