Ocean Clear Filters?

    I am looking at a used tank that comes with 2 Ocean Clear canister filters. I had never heard of them.

    Does anyone have experience or know anything about them?

    I used to use them on my display tanks when I owned a LFS. They're a good filter, but you want to use your own filtering media. The main thing to look for is that the motor is working and there isn't any cracks in the housing. If it's been sitting a long time it might need O-rings. If you can get it cheap enough I'd go for it!

    Ha! I was beginning to think that I would not be getting a response on this question. The filters are actually in use right now. There are 2 of them on a 125g drilled tank, wood stand, fluorescent lights (so I would have to buy led lights) for $500.

    I am not liking the maintenance routine that I am finding online. Washing, bleaching drying the insert. If I could use my own filtering media, that appeals to me.
