The one thing the 300 has is that it's cheaper than the 110!
I mean I've heard decent things about Penn Plax, and I have seen them in action, but never used one myself though. I've always stuck with whisper, aquaclear, fluval, and eheim as brands for filters personally. Are you thinking of getting a 300 for another tank?
Well the reason I ask is because my 50G tank came with a Cascade 300 and I haven't yet used it since I swapped over my AquaClear in order to retain the beneficial bacteria.
Would it make a difference if I can them along side each other or would it just be pointless and not really matter?
