    Hi everybody.

    I have a 90 gallon aquarium currently running a wet dry setup, i would like to switch to a canister filter. Does anybody have any experience with the cascade 1200 filter? It seems to be a bit cheaper than the eheims and the capacity seems good.

    If this is not a good filter, do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I think I recall seeing those recently. Do you have a link to a pic?

    Oh yes. A guy at the fish store was boasting about those. I don't have any experience with them, but they sure look nice. How much cheaper are they than eheims?

    I run a 1200 and it has been the best filter I have ever used, speaking for freshwater. As long as you place the correct media in sequence. I have a Rena Filstar XP3 and the Cascade runs circled around it.
