Ok, doing some research, I found this site http://www.aquariumguys.com in which I can get both the filter (Tetra Whisper EX70) and the heater (Marineland visitherm stealth 200 watt) for $71 shipped. now looking just online at both Petco (which I wouldn't buy from anyways just looking at pricing) and Petsmart Both of those are over 80 for the same products. So I suppose I shall buy online, save a lil $$ and get the same products...LOL

Has anyone bought from Aquariumguys.com before?

Is this for the ~50 gallon tank? Personally I've been very happy with my Marineland filters. If I was getting a new filter at the moment I'd be picking up a Penguin 350 or Emperor 400.
Aquarium Power Filters: Marineland Penguin BIO-Wheel Power Filters
Tropical Aquarium Filters & Filtration: Marineland Emperor BIO-Wheel Powerfilters

I've bought from aquariumguys before, no problems at all.

Yes, this will be for the 50 gallon tank. I've always had good luck with tetra stuff, but am open to new ideas, as I haven't had a big tank for quite a while. I don't plan on having this whole aquarium setup anytime soon, it might even be January before I can get everything. I only get paid bi-weekly, and bills come before gettin this aquarium completely setup. plus I just don't want to rush it.

Yeah, that's a bad idea. You're creating stress points on the glass and dramatically increasing the chances those aquariums will break. In fact it's almost a certainty. They need to be supported along the full length of their bottoms.

The older Tetra filters are just fine, but I've heard a lot of complaints about the new EX series. The Marineland ones are probably a better choice.

Yes, they are However, there's absolutely nothing in them at the moment. and they aren't on what they will be on once I get anything in them. they are only on temp "stands" that I used when I was testing for leaks. once i found no leaks, water was removed, and they sit waiting for the rest. that's why the post says "sort-of" setup. I merely have them in the places where I want them, made sure they will fit where they need to go. and as I said these tanks won't be anywhere near put together til prolly jan, bi-weekly checks limits funds at certain points, and I've gotta get stands for the 10's...filter, heater for the 50 gallon, as well as substrate, plants, deco for all 3.

Matter a fact, the 50 will probably be setup before the others, simply because it has a stand already lol...Thanks for paying close attention, and worrying though.

Ah, and reading about the marineland filters, I think I'm liking them better then the Tetra ones anyways. so I may just go that route, seeings as they are even less expensive than the Tetra line
