Any of you heard of this filter (http://www.youtube.com/MaidenheadAquatics) before?
I only found it today wonder if it is any good. Not that I need a new filter and it looks a bit over kill for my tank but was just wondering if anyone had any opinions of it.

I LOVE Fluvals. I have had them since the 03 line and time after time they have proven to do the job. HOWEVER, at least at this point I do not ever plan on recommending the new G series unless someone is specifically looking for bells, whistles, lower flow, and lower capacity.
I think on a 60liter/15gallon it would be enough, but for the money you could get a Fluval 205 on ebay AND another entire 15 gallon setup.

.....and your wallet hemorrhaging cash from the absurd price they want for that thing. I don't see too many of those moving off the shelves.

Great filters but this one is still new and still in the experiental stage as far as I'm concerned. And too much money. You could buy two Fluval 405's for what this one cost.

So it is over priced then? I wondered if it would be I have not seen how much they go for yet. I wonder what information the display can show would be nice to be able to do all of the water tests like ammonia, nitrite etc just by looking at a display on our filters. I am happy enough with my fluval plus 2 internal which I currently have on my tank.
Oh on another topic I found a single panda cory egg in my tank today and it is of a darkish colour so I guess that it might hatch in a day or two. I am just trying to work out how to remove it from the glass and the best way to try and raise the fry. I so want to keep the little guy as I was after increasing my my corries to 5-6 and they are quite expensive to purchase compared to the rest of my fish.

The cheapest I have seen them retail for is on drsfostersmith at $500 for the 'big' one.
