    FE reg and gauge question please

    Filter options, head is spinning a bit....

    Thanks Tom, chatted to the very helpful peeps at my local MA and am considering the Aquamanta EFX 300 aswell which I think is equivalent size etc so am gonna have a look at that the weekend. Not fitting in the cabinet isn't the end of the world but it would be nice.

    Filter options, head is spinning a bit....

    Sorry for the double post, I was always happy with my EX1200, never had any problems etc but my only downside is that it wont fit in my cabinet!! :( Its within budget so may well plump for that.
