Thumbs up

This is the largest views and replies thread on canister filter so far.

I have tried filters of Marineland, Coralife, etc but Ehiem is the best filter I ve used.

Put the filter under the tank and the intake tube under the water then suck on the outflow and let the canister fill. Voila!

Don't Swallow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I carefully fill my intake with water and do the same with the canister to get it primed, you need to use the quick connect shut off valves to be able to do it this way but I never like putting my lips on fish peepooh lines no matter how much I've cleaned. If you have all the line close to full then plug in the filter and open the intake side then the exhaust it works everytime.

Eheim Pro 3 2075 canister
Quick Vac battery operated gravel vac
Daily auto feeder.

Planning on getting some more canisters by them for the rest of my "Living Room Tanks" Most likely more Pro 3's
