    so a while back you may recall i bought a cheapy canister filter off ebay. for up till about 2 weeks ago it was running GREAT. the flow was slower than stated but it seemed like it had a good enough flow rate for a 55-65g tank. but now the filter has been running for almost a year its louder than a 747 airplane taking off. its too much to be around. i will be removing it and replacing it with my spare AC's till i can afford a good canister filter. over all my jebo 838 filter seemed decent for the first few months but now im kicking my self in the rear for not saving the extra 30 bucks for a rena xp2...

    so if you are planning on buying a cheapy brand off ebay like i did please heed my advice and just save a few extra bucks, the cheapy will need replacing within the first year.

    also i will most likely be placing this in reviews.

    I got a used eheim classic 150 that made a racket at first. Replaced the shaft and the bushings and it was right again. Total costs about 55% of what a new one would have cost me. Classics often surface on the used market and parts are easy to find. Perhaps something for you?

    A noisy filter is a royal pain in the rear. I'm often surprised that the magazines and commercial sites overlook this when they review gear.

    Other than Consumers Report, there are no serious or real reviews anymore. The loss of revenue from losing an advertiser or potential cost of defending against even a frivolous lawsuit, precludes truth.

    Even articles about doing specific things, lack names of specific products, so as not to offend the other suppliers and manufacturers.
