 Hi  Team,
 I'm  planning  to  buy  External  Filter  for  my  Aquarium  (44"  x  15"  x  27"  -  [L  x  W  x  H]).  
 I  leave  in  Raipur,  and  planning  to  getting  Filter  ordered  from  somewhere  else  than  Raipur.
 LFSs  here  are  selling  accessories  @  2~4  times  more  than  its  prices  prevailing  in  Other  Major  Cities.
 I've  budget  of  3~3.5K,  pls  suggest  external  filter  in  this  range.
 While  browsing  I've  came  across  with  one  Homemade  Filter  Available  on  ebay,  with  three  different  models.
 I  had  talk  to  this  ebay  shop  owner  who  claims  that  his  filters  are  widely  demanded  and  better  performer  than  some  external  filters  as  his  filter  range  starts  from  5  stage  filtration  to  9  stage  filtration  (link  provided  for  reference).
 Pls  advise  can  one  should  go  for  this  kind  of  filter.  
 One  of  LFS  told  me  price  of  E-Jet  3358  price  around  3K,  can  I  go  for  this  filter,  or  homemade  filter?
 Pls  help  me!
 Moderators  may  delete  this  thread  if  I'm  violating  any  norm!

 I  don't  understand  why  you  would  want  to  buy  a  homemade  filter.  Instead  of  buying  one,  you  can  make  it  yourself.  but  of  course,  I  understand  that  not  everyone  is  into  DIY.
 Go  in  for  a  proper  canister  filter.  Brand,  model  &  make  will  be  for  you  to  choose.  There  are  numerous  filters  in  the  market.  But  in  the  budget  that  you  mention,  you  can  only  look  into  some  of  the  Chinese  makes  like  SunSun,  Boyu,  Hopar  etc.  The  E-jet  you  mention  seems  to  have  a  max  flow  of  only  700lph.  That  may  not  be  enough  for  your  tank.  Well,  that  also  depends  on  what  you  have  in  your  tank,  but  700lph  is  too  low  in  any  case.  Aim  for  a  minimum  of  1500lph.  That  should  give  you  5x  cycling.  But  for  that  you  have  to  get  a  filter  that  is  rated  at  around  2000lph  to  be  an  effective  1500lph.  Also  remember,  the  higher  the  filtration,  the  better.  For  a  tank  of  your  size,  it  would  also  be  a  good  idea  to  have  2  filters.  This  will  make  filtration  more  efficient.  You  can  get  2  filters  that  are  rated  around  1000lph  each  and  install  them  on  opposite  ends  of  the  tank.
 If  you  are  interested  in  DIY  projects,  you  can  make  a  wet/dry  trickle  filter  at  a  fraction  of  the  cost.  DIY  plans  for  such  filters  are  available  all  over  the  internet.
 Would  be  a  good  idea  for  you  to  give  all  your  tank  specs  including  fish,  plants  etc.  so  that  people  can  give  you  more  accurate  answers.

 I  wouldn't  trust  that  home  made  filter,  It  looks  like  the  locking  mechanism  might  give  away  and  you  can  have  leaks  any  time  later.
 the  body  also  looks  crappy..  and  over  all  it  doesn't  look  nice.  I  don't  like  the  sellers  comment  on  the  usage  range  of  this  filter..
 The  seller  tells  it  can  be  used  for  tanks  from  20L  to  1000L,  Output  =  50/1800  L/H,  Power  =  15/20  W..
 No  filter  can  have  such  huge  range  of  usage  in  terms  of  volume..  either  it  is  too  small  for  a  1000l  or  too  big  for  a  20l  tank.
 I  don't  mind  if  you  bought  one  of  the  chines  makes  like  Sunsun,  jbl  etc..  but  home  made  ..  no  for  sure.
 And  that   E-Jet  3358  flow  rate  is  too  small  for  your  tank..  get  at  filter  with  least  1000  to  2000  L/H  flow.
 You  can  try  the  one  in  the  link  below  or  some  thing  similar..  if  you  can't  spend  more.
 Or  spend  a  little  more  and  get  some  thing  like  this..
