having a look at some filter choices for a 114L, 30G, long tank.

wondering which one you guys think is better:

1) Jebo 508; 980LPH (8.6 times tank volume per hour)

2) Aqua One H800; 800LPH (7 times tank volume per hour)

thanks

I'm afraid I can't comment on either of those. I've only had experiance with Penn-Plax Cascade. They're not bad, but I really love our canister filter. Have you looked at any of the canister filters? We switched over to the Filstar XP2 for our 29G and love it. With the HOB it seemed like it clogged up early and water started going right over the filter media, instead of through it. With the canister filter its all forced to go through the filter media. We also have a much larger filter media as well as more of it, so we don't have to clean/change it as often.

If a canister filter would fit in your budget, I'd consider one of them before a HOB.

yea, budget and availability at good prices are factors - in new zealand everything costs that much more - more shipping and less bulk purchase - small country, population 4.1mil
