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.
