    If it is true that they markup 200% or even 20% should we throw our money?Anyway,I've checked with Ben at Petmart and a 2227 cost $250.I have a 4ft marine tank with a overhead filter.So far i've never achieved "crytal clear" quality.The sad part is that my tank cannot be modified for an overflow system since it has been setup.A 2227 sounds ex but i know its worth it.U guys think will my aquarium water be "crystal clear" if I were to use Attman highest range or Prime 30 and only EHFISUBSTRAT for the media and stop using the overhead filter?Please help.
    Thanx alot

    crystal clear? add charcoal??? i used that for my tank.. do not dump the overhead filter immediately.. u need to mature the filter media inside..... from what i know.. some fella had been successful using a normal canister filter... the difference is just that 2227 have a wet/dry area to create the nitrosomonas and nitrobacter bacteria.. the 'dry' part will provide the oxygen for the bacteria to break down the waste... at the end of the day.. just remember this.. the filter is the heart and kidney of the system.. as it cleans the water for u...[]

    Hmmm $250 for a 2227 isn't too expensive... Might consider getting one for my marine tank..

    Superb quality protein skimmer(such as venturi skimmer) is also vital in marine tank, please do not over-emphazied the use of canister filter.(no offence )

    true... but u need a protein skimmer for marine..

    u mean marco skimmer.. it uses powerhead to draw the water into the skimmer.. acting something like a cyclone..
    [] similar to the sea storm cyclone skimmer unit... if based on that.. some users here give the reviews that it is not very good...[]

    In some Berlin marine system, it only require huge protein skimmer and live rock to create a biological filtration system.

    IMO, wet/dry filter with sump tank plus a protein skimmer(not air driven) would be a better choice because it is more versatile than 2227/9. In addition, it is cheaper in the long run.
