Rena XP-3.....Cheap !
Been looking for a Fluval FX5 for a few weeks now to put on my 125 gallon, i looked on pet mountain yesterday and noticed the Rena XP3 was only $119.99 which i thought was pretty cheap. I also noticed the XP2 was $119.49 !!! Im not sure if this was a typo so i decided to order 2 incase it was. Now i will have 2 XP3's running on the 125 which i figure will be better than if i had just bought one FX5 on its own.

Just a heads up incase anyone is looking for one.

Do you need that much flow? The majority of tropical fish hate a strong flow, but some do come from faster rivers.

A single XP3 is sufficient for a 125g, especially if you have life plants.

But yes, forgot to mention, that is a good price. They are usually $140 on Amazon.

Its for a turle tank with fish that i bred to become feeders although the turtle didnt do a good job of that ! So the bio load is more than average, cant have any plants obviously so 2 of these will work great.

actually just got the confirmation that my order has been processed so all is good ! I was worried i would get an email saying the price was a mistake LOL.
Forgot to mention the price includes free shipping !!! cant beat that

Ah, turtles, yes, those are messy messy messy!

I'm planning out a 125g myself and was thinking of using the xp3. Let us know how they work out.
