FX5 vs pro 3

Post by liamoi » Mon Mar 26, 2007 2:20 pm

Which filter do you think is better, bearing in mind the difference in price, the fluval FX5 or the Eheim professional 3!?
Cheers!

Personally I prefer the Eheims. Although more expensive, they have a longer lifetime, brake less ofthen and if they do they're usually easier to repair.

and i agree with the final statement (that summarised) is the ehiem is a slightly better filter, but is it worth twice the price.

If I had the money I'd use Eheim, no second thought about it.

PsYcHoTiC, good to see a familiar name in here!
