  1. Thanks for the replies. I ended up going with the second hand Eheim Pro 3 1200XLT as it was only a year old, came with eheim media and i picked it up for a great price. Sounds like either filter would have done a good job though on my 4ft tank, will see how this one goes and if it lives up to its RRP $1200 price tag.
  2. Hi DarksideAm, Just wondering how you find the Nautilus 2700? Is it pretty quiet or noisy would you say? any other issues with it? just tossing up between this one with the UV or another brand.
  3. Hi, Please help with recommendations about which filter to buy. I have a 4ft Aquarium quite heavily stocked with african cichlids and am looking to buy a new canister filter. So far Im tossing up between the Eheim Professional 3 1200XLT and the Aqua One Nautilus 2700 UV. My price range is $350 or less, so if i buy the Eheim it will be second hand and if i buy the Aqua One it will be new with 3 years warranty. Previously I had a biopro 2200L with UV which kept the water pretty stable but was noisy (i have sand substrate so maybe that contributed), we've just upgraded the tank and the new stand has no back on it (why i do not know) so the sound will be even more evident, so we are looking for a filter that will be as quiet as possible, which from reading reviews both of these seem to be fairly quiet. When we used the UV in the old filter we had a lot less algae on the glass, so i feel like the UV steriliser would be beneficial, but i guess i could always get a separate UV steriliser if i went with the Eheim. What to do? Eheim: PROs: better build quality, quietest option? more energy efficient CONS: have to buy 2nd hand, no warranty, no UV included, hard to prime? Nautilus: PROs: Fairly quiet, UV and filter media included, Affordable, 3 yr warranty CONS: Average quality, maybe louder than Eheim? hard to prime? Uses about 12W more power Or is there a better option in my price range? Thanks for your help
