JEBO 828/838 External Canister Filter

This listing is for One Canister Filter

Exceptional value perfect ecological external canister filter. Suitable for Marine and Fresh water with superstrong filtration capacity. Suitable for tanks 3 feet and above, this filter pump is rated at 315 gal/hr (1,200 lph)
The JEBO canister filter system uses a multi-stage approach to filtration, separating a number of distinct filter materials into easy access baskets. The wide variety of filter materials provide waste-free water, strong biological purification and active control of water characteristics. By combining wide media choice with ease of access, the aquarist can customize filtration style to the aquarium's actual need. Media included.

With the turnaround valves of safety design, water flow can be controlled delicately as desired. The connecting tube ends are threaded to prevent the rubber pipes from loosening. Press the round circular button, water from the tank will flow into the filter, the air will then be squeezed out and go to the other end of the outlet tube. The filter media is designed in simple modules for easy replacement and cleaning.

Review Date: Sun December 2, 2012 Would you recommend the product? No | Price you paid?: $80.00 | Rating: 2 

Positive aspects of the product (pros): cheaper than other canister filters. ran good for about 10 months. used to be quite and easy to clean
Cons: after 10 months or so it became VERY loud and could not be in the same room with it. it gave me migrains

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.

I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
gotta love them bunnies!
