Which is the best Canister Filter
If i was to add a Canister filter to my 75 Gallon Mbuna tank which one would you recommend?

I would recommend a FX5 or a Rena XP4.
That should allow you to have a high bioload in a 74 gallon tank.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

I agree with both previous posters.
I add 1 more to the mix a Fluval G6 I love mine.Sailor

Though fluval G6 is quite expensive... I would recommend either rena filstar xp3/4.Da name's Paul. Not Dave. ROFL

There are a couple threads here on "best canister filter".
I remember fairly recently there was a poll. You might want to run a search on that and read those threads.
So far, I have 4 eheims (one bought new, the rest used) and they all run great.

Thank You all for your suggestions, I was leaning towards the Rena and you have all cemented it for me, Thanks again.

Have two Fluvals but the ones from the past have airlocks problems. Not sure about newer ones and for that reason I would also go with Rena.

on my mnuba i used two filters. one was an eheim easy 80 which i used for the media volume capacity. the second was a fluval 405 which had pretty good mdia capacity and a high turnover rate.
ive had nothing but good experiences with fluval 405's and various eheim canister filters. theyre both very quite as well. i have 3 eheim easy 80's, and eheim easy 60, and 2 fluval 405s in my bedroom withing about 8ft max from my bed, and youll never ever hear them!
