Thanks for the info I found it informative I will let you know how I make out and what I think after I get it and set it up..Islandvic said:Here is a review of the All Ponds Solutions 1000EF canister ( aka Aquatop CF300 or SunSun 302). In this video by Richard from his UK "Pondguru" YouTube channel, he sets up the non-UV version. Otherwise it should be virtually identical to the one you're looking at.....
Please keep in mind Richard the host owns the "Bio-Home" company that produces the line of biological media and he sells bulk sheets of pond foam sponge. So of course in all his videos he loads up the filters with what he sells. I still like watching his videos (even though they are part sales pitch) because they are still very informative.
Toward the end he advises it is a well built filter and holds a lot of media for its size and price. When he doesnt like a product or the way its constructed, he definitely let's the views know (he really hammers an Eheim Pro+4 canister in one video, ha).
Let us know what you get and how you like it.
I am always looking at other people's opinions and user experience for different models of equipment, in case I come across a great deal that I cant pass up!
