    Thanks for your responses and recommendations. Looks like the classic series is overwhelmingly preferred both here and on another forum I posted to. So not only will I save some money, but if you are all correct (and I have no reason to doubt you ), I will also head off some potential problems experienced with the more expensive models.

    I think I will be considering the 2217 even though it may be a little more than I need initially. I do tend to push the limit a bit with my stocking.

    Meh - NBD.

    Proper tools --> Two plastic colanders and a perfectly sized bowl of dechlor water... Dig out & dunk the media in the bowl & then rinse/dunk the sponges.

    Clean the canister and put it all back.

    You know how often you have to perform this labor of love lol... Not very. Like I said... NBD.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    When I first set up my Tang tank it had no plants and a low bioload. I cleaned out the filter every six months. Now I have plants...jeez, the filth.
