opcorn: Save your money. Been down that Jebo road a few yrs. back & it ain't pretty. It might work fine early on, but the poor mfgr. quality of this Eheim 'knock off' will soon cost you more in the long run. Example, my initial cost was $55 for the 828 (now I think it's like $65). Fast forward almost 8 mo. to when filter self destructed,
* new filter (the one I have 3 yrs. now) Rena XP3 -- $120
* new carpet -- $450
* dwnstrs ceiling repair -- $125
* new aggravation from the wife -- PRICELESS!!!
Every bargain ain't always a bargain. Let the buyer beware !! "T"
