If you had not wanted to be confronted on this you should have not said
anything.  The fact is, you are wrong.  There is nothing wrong w/ the Fluval
Canister filter.  I have seen most work for 10+ years with no problems.  The
eheim professional series is the only class of eheims i rate higher than the
Fluvals when it comes to quality and ease of maintenance.  The fluvals are
very easy to prime, it just takes a little practice.  There is no reason to
have to resort to sucking fish poop.  If anyone needs any help priming their
fluval's, email me.  I will be happy to help. 

Is anyone else sick of Mr. Purchase's attitude?
