Eheim!!!!


Anyone know where I can buy an Eheim canister filter here in CFL? All I can find are Fluval filters and I've heard that they aren't that great. If anyone knows please advise!!!!

Order one online from places like:
http://www.bigalsonline.com
http://petsolutions.com
http://www.drsfostersmith.com/
http://www.thatpetplace.com

I have found these online vendors to be reliable and are cheaper even with added shipping costs than any of the local fish stores near me. I don't know how the prices are near you but you should definately check out these online vendors.

Too Late! I bought an Eheim Ecco 2231 @ Aquatic Ecosystems here in Orlando for $50! It came with everything and they threw in some extra filter media! Thnx for the suggestions guys but I really don't buy online anymore due to a little thing called identity theft.... When your bank acct gets cleaned out in 2 days due to buying something online where you thought you were safe, it kinda leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Most of these places have toll free phone #'s. You can place your order over the phone and not worry about identity theft.

Well I thought about that too but I'm just not too happy about not seeing the person that I'm talking to or merchandise that I'm purchasing. Just an issue I have! Hard for me to trust anyone anymore....

Do you have an address handy for that store? Do they have fish? Plants? Just lots of supplies? I might need to go check them out.

Aquatic Ecosystems is in Apopka off of Apopka Boulevard. Go to www.aquaticeco.com and look em up! They really deal with fisheries management, lake and pond health, and they also have some good aquarium hobby supplies such as lights, ferts, substrates, filters, hard to find pumps and miscellaneous other odds and ends. They can be a bit pricey for some things but it is offset by the fact that are a one stop shop for all your aquatic needs! ( I don't work there just in case you ask )

I bought my Eheims through Amazon. Al's does business through the website. So far, I haven't had any issues.

Insofar as the ID theft and online purchases, get yourself a refillable VISA or MC and transfer money into it when you are going to buy something.

Your credit card number still winds up being out there.

Again, probably one of the safest options out there.
