I purchased the Eshopps brand from "the doctors" and it was on sale for $133 ish plus tax I think. It came with EVERYTHING including the hoses both input and output, overflow box, bio balls, egg crate all in a two chamber acrylic case. The overflow box even has two chambers and the part that hangs in the tank is a nice black acrylic. It came with everything but a pump. After looking over everything I am impressed. I cant wait to get it up and running. By the way it is the smallest version with a flow rate of 300 gph I believe. My tank is a 36 gallon bowfront and the stand I built is just big enough to fit the recommended filter by Eshopps. Unfortunately the pump I ordered, a mag drive rated at 700 gph I believe, wont be here till next week. Can't wait to get it up and running though.
Any other input on the process in volved in the switch over?
