I think the Marina Aquavac has a brass fitting.

Also, the tank they show has Balas and Clown loaches, which I am considering, lol.

Check out this site for aquarium related products, super cheap on some stuff and have amazingly fast shipping all over Canada.

I have a 50ft python on my kitchen faucet, works great, it comes with a little adapter to fit 99% of all faucets.

That's the one I'm shopping at. If I buy my filters, heaters, decorations, airpump and vacuum there, I save $150 vs my local store.

They're the site that says they strongly recommend the Marina Aquavac over the Python brand.

Does your Python have a brass attachment, or plastic? According to Pets and Ponds the Marina is more durable.

Yes it is the Python brand. It came with a brass fitting for the faucet. I ordered an extra fitting, and didn't need it.

I would not get Python if it were me. I have had a 75-foot Python for 15 years now, and twice the faucet attachment broke when the threads all stripped due to the water pressure when filling the tank. I bought an Aqueon faucet part (which fits the Python hose) and it is much better made. I do not know the Marina brand, but if it is brass i would expect this to be OK, and better than the Python plastic.

I had problems with kitchen faucets in the condo, and when I moved into my present house with a laundry sink I had a proper brass faucet put on it with good threads, much like an outdoor tap. This works much better.

Big Al's i believe carries the Aqueon model, at least they used to. They have an online Canadian source that I've used. And the Pets and Ponds that Tazman linked is a very reliable site, I use them for almost everything I can get including fish foods. They are very inexpensive, and even with the $9-10 shipping you save a bundle if you buy several items.
