This is the rena.. Rena FilStar External Canister Filters - Filtration & Circulation - Fish - PetSmart

this is the Eheim Pro... EHEIM Professional II with Thermofilter for Freshwater - Filtration & Circulation - Fish - PetSmart

Filters are very expensive .

Ill have to keep that in mind when I buy my tank.
After doing some reading...... I decided to go with the Marineland C-360 Cansiter filter. I used to have a Magnum Canister filter, which worked great, but was a PITA to change out the filter and media. The C-360 looks to be much easier to use and fit within my budget :D

The nice thing is I could modify the intakes and outlets to suit my needs quite easily, since the hose is 3/4 ID hose found at about any hardware store or outlet.

Now to order the Plexiglass for the dividers, paint the stand and maybe be ready to setup this weekend if all goes well.
