I have 3 of these guys, and I hate to say it now but I wish I would have passed and just bought a eheim. There flow is not as good as they rate it, and now all 3 of mine are down after a year. 20$ for a eheim 2217 would have been

Sunsun Pimp #12 checking here. Have had mine running since 2010, and still kicking and filtering my tank like day 1. I have no complaints here. I even had a period of time where I didn't clean the filter for nearly a year due to a new job leaving no time for focusing on my tank. I'm finally getting back to it and still using my Sunsun filter.

What size do I need

Hello all you sunsun pimps, I have a question for you. I am in the process of acquiring all the hardware to setup a 55g I purchased from a lady in town. I have been reading this thread and have decided to try one of these filters. My question is what size sunsun do I need to run on this size tank? I am going with a high light high tech tank. It will have a 4 bulb t5 light so can run up to 216watts of light. I am also planning on pressurized co2 with an inline reactor, either a griggs or cerges type(havent decided yet). So, any input would be great and also what are your opinions on the uv version. Should I get it or not? Thanx and I look forward to joining your ranks soon.

Sink-tested mine today and it behaved as described:

- Priming from dry was effortless, the key being to slowly press the plunger.
- The pump is Dead Silent!

I will probably not have the aquarium set up until next weekend but this filter appears to be a good buy.

I think th uv on most canisters is useless because of the limited contact time. You really need a sump or some other inline UV IMO. As for size, I have a 302 HW that is puportedly rated for up to a 100 gal. I am using it on a 29 gal. And I added a Koralia 425 to get more flow. I'd think you'd want to go up at least one size from the smallest one and maybe 2 especially if you are going to add a reactor. Just my 2 cents though.

Just call me SunSun Pimp #81. I have a high tech 55 gallon cycling right now. I wanted to add more water movement and some inline stuff so i went for the big boy (maybe the 304-B). I have an Eheim pro3 2071 that i thought could use a little help.

SunSun Pimp #82! Although I got my SunSun gear a few weeks ago. Running 2 3200gph SunSun powerheads! Monster flow! My fish sometimes get caught up in the whirlpools in the middle of the tank. It's hilarious watching them spin. They're tough fish!

SunSun Pimp #83. Been up for about a week. Digging it. Had to fight the tubes for about an hour trying to straighten them out a bit but I am guessing all canisters are like this. Do you guys somehow mount the tubes somewhere behind the tank?

SunSun pimp #84 here! I have the 302 that's been running for a week so far. As everyone has mentioned, this thing is dead silent! My tank is crystal clear! I have one question though. It appears that this unit filters from the bottom up, what is the best order to place the media?
