Yea Rusty, I'm thinkin, of replacing my 2 xp2's with these boys on my 125. All the current XP2 media would drop right in, so no waiting for them to establish. After a few weeks of them running, I could take half the XP4 media, put it back in the XP2's, and run both of them on my 55.

That's only 50 gph shy of Eheim's big dog 500gph $300.00 2260.
Of course the 2260 holds 18 Litres of media and is rated for 400 gals. And you also have Fluvals new FX5 in the mix as well.

Decisions,Decisions.
Money,Money.

I like the FX5, I've heard really good things. But if the XP3 was great, I can only imagine how good the XP4 would be. I wonder how loud it is tho, the only complaint I've ever heard about the XP3 is the noise
