i also like ehim but ehim is quit expensive . and the review of the fx5 and 06 is really good. also flow rate of fx is double then ehim same serious. so i m dam confuse which one i buy . please suggest. in boravali aqanature shop is authorized dealer for both . i also talk with the shop owner and from his opinion now today fluvel is the best compare to ehim . so please pull out me from this big question.

In terms of quality, both fluval & eheim are matched equally. They are fantastic at the job they do and would last you a lifetime. The main thing to consider would be availability of spares & service. Eheim is a more popular brand in our country & therefore procuring spares is easier. If you are convinced that the store you're dealing with will give you spares & service over time, then by all means go for the Fluval. But if you want to play safe, get the Eheim.
Despite any high quality, all machines will undergo wear & tear, so spares are essential. Also, do not look at price only from the price tag perspective. Look at it from a 'value for money' perspective. in terms of after sale service, material quality, ease of use, spares availability, running costs, long term costs, overall popularity etc. The more popular a product, the easier it will be to get spares. It will also be easier to get help from 'others' (hobbyists/LFS etc) on how to troubleshoot.
Its like buying Maruti car vs buying a european car. due to its popularity, maruti spares are available almost anywhere.
If I were you, I'd play safe & get an Eheim. But in terms of quality, both are very good products.
