Thanks for the reply!! I've been wanting one of these filters for a while, just didnt want to fork out the $$$ for it. Saw this one up for bid and watched it like a hawk. Snagged it up and I and really stoked to get it up and running. I know they're mainly used for bio filtration not so much for mechanical. This is what I got it for though, wanted to do wet dry, just didnt want to deal with all the other stuff that comes with a traditional wet dry, overflow, pump, hoses, etc. With this I getr everything in one box, probably fo chaeper than I could build a DIY sump for.
My first Eheim, I've always used Fluvals. From what I've read though I dont plan on being upset with the Eheim quality. I still love my FLuvals though, never done me wrong (knock on wood).
