Sometimes aquarium hobbyists are presented with a slight problem…to have to choose between two great products. For those with a larger aquarium budget, this isn’t really an issue. Buy the one you want, and if it doesn’t work out you can experiment. However, those who aren’t as fortunate must choose and have to live with that decision. The big makes or breaks when picking from a small group of reputable equipment are the companies’ customer service reputation, the length of time each has been in business, and most likely the price if they are different on the products you are researching. Do some intensive researching and understand any potential risks or downsides to the equipment you ultimately end up choosing.
