Question about Fluval 303 filter

I've been searching Craigslist for a second canister filter for my 125 gallon tank. I really want another XP3 but they are hard to find.

Anyways, I've found someone selling a brand new Fluval 303 canister filter for $30 but I haven't been able to find out much about it on the internet. The only thing I can find are replacement parts, nobody seems to be selling the filter. Is it an older model that the 305 replaced??

If anyone knows anything about these or if you can post a link to some info I'd appreciate it. Thanks!!

125 gallon tank:
2 Tiger oscars, 1 Electric blue jack dempsey, 1 Jack dempsey, 2 Bala sharks, 1 Firemouth, 1 Salvini, 1 Texas cichlid, 1 Pleco; All juveniles

29 gallon (in the works):
1 Blue ram, 1 Cockatoo cichlid, 1 Powder blue dwarf gourami, 1 Bolivian Ram, 8 Neon tetras, 4 Corydoras, 2 Bamboo shrimp, some ghost shrimp

Yeah it was replaced by the 304 which was then replaced by the 305, so it is a couple generations old. I am not sure, but I think the 03s first came out in the '90s. Someone really has a "new" one for sale? Wow....

My wife rolls her eyes when I talk about getting another tank

i have the fluval 305.
it's a good filter,nice and quiet,and easy to clean.

Fluval 305 Canister Filter (Hagen)

if i can help with anything else i'll try.
i can take pictures of the inside of it,with the impellor taken out,the sponges,or the
media basket,if that would help you.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
