    I dont know if im right but i would go for Iwaki if money is not a problem or Eheim if you're in a hurry. Any aquarium/hobby pet shop should have Eheim pumps in stock

    As for the Iwaki i think you will have to order online
    The Iwaki MD-15R is a very good pump

    Here is a website that can help you with your decision

    You're gonna pay a premium for Eheim at a Pet Store/Aquarium shop. I got a Swiftech MCP300 and the Swiftech MCW50 off the internet for the same price as the Eheim 1250 at my local petstore. And mine included shipping and all the neccessary adapters to hook it in.

    The only Eheim 1250 I could find in the city was at a reasonably priced aquarium shop and it was, no word of a lie, 250 bucks. Yeah whatever

    That's CDN mind you

    I've been looking to buy this pump, and the cheapest place I've found is this place. It's on sale now so you may want to order soon. I've never ordered form this place, but I'm about to. You'll probably want to pick up some fittings also.

    EDIT: Get a 3/8"npt x 1/2" barbed and a 1/2"NPT x 1/2" barbed fitting if you're using 1/2" tubing, that is.

    Go to a pet store if you want to get a pump right away, but sometimes it pays off to be patient. If you can wait get an Eheim 1250 pump from DTek Customs, you'll be happier with the Eheim pump.

    It's $8 cheaper at criticool, and I've heard of many people who have ordered from them, just not me. Shipping was a little high ($20), but I ordered a bunch of stuff. I don't know how much shipping would be with only the 1250 pump.

    I've read mixed results with the maxijet, and I wanted one of the best, and a proven performer. That's why I chose eheim. Enjoy, your pump, anyway. I hope you like it. BTW, I paid $60 for the eheim.

    Buck already bought his pump long ago, and an eheim was already suggested to him. And judging by your posts it appears you are only trying to increase your post count.

    I do see your point with the fact that he only posts “one liners” and has only posted for a total of “4 days” good eyes Thorn

    Hempp, the point of being a member is to contribute to the community and what you’re doing is the kind of thing that will keep you out of the classifieds. Remember that the Mods in here do look over your history and how you contribute to the Forum. To me looks like one of the marks of a troll
