A buddy of mine has a Fluval FX5 that he purchased not long before getting out of the hobby. He has all the hoses and baskets, and it is in the box, only used for a few months. 

These can go for close to $300 so it would be a great bargain if you have a large tank. I own one and I love this filter! Excellent filtration, very, very quiet and easy to operate and clean. It has a drain port at the bottom so you can empty it prior to lifting it to clean. It also has an automatic shutoff every 24 hours (and 2 minutes after restarting) to allow air bubbles to collect at the top and be expelled. 

This is an Amazon listing (going USED for $500 - but that's got to be a joke - you can get them WAY cheaper than that) that has all of the info about the filter.

This may sound ridiculous, but if it sits for a while with no takers, I can do $40 and another java fern delivery LOL!

I'll let you know, David - He's got no tanks now so I doubt he'd be interested in the java, but if he can't find a buyer at his asking price and wants to go for it I'll take the java as a finder's fee, lol! 

You have a giant tank in the works?

Not yet, but I want a canister filter for the 55 gallon, and if craigs list is kind to me, in time I may want to switch out the 55 for a 90 or 120. As long as its 4 feet long, I can manage it.
