looking to get a wet/dry filter

can any one comment on their wet/dry filtration and associated equipment? im looking at my options and so far the most appealing are products by pro clear aquatics. here is a link to their sitehttp://proclearaquatics.com/

the smallest model the slim line 60 is $160 while another store only carried the 75 gallon model which was only $5 more. the matching in sump protein skimmer for both models is $120.

also can anyone recommend a good pump under $100. they recommended the mag drive md7 and said that it was better than the rio.

my tanks specs are listed in my sig

These are reely good wetdry filters.Why? becasue they come with a skimmer and it is mounted before the bioballs, the water passes through the skimmer and is emptied into the bioballs, this is good because for one thing the water is clean when it enters the bioballs so you will have minimal nitrate buildup and two the water is phisicaly cleaner of any gunk,slime or sluge so your bioballs will be cleaner, clean the bioball often and nitrate shouldent be a problem in your tank. The recemended pump for it is the mag 5. Is this the filter you were already looking at? you dident specify what model you were talking about, they make several.

Eheim makes the best submersible pumps hands down. Period. Mag drives use doubel the electricity for the same GPH. Rio are good house fire starters.

no, i saw those on the website but the ones i saw at the store were separate units, not the pro series like the one in the link is.

actually i find the filter on that website to be a good deal since the seperate filter and skimmer at the store would cost $280. im going to look into it some more.
