    Hello everyone First of all I want to say that I have gotten some really good advise from this forum. I am a long time lurker/first time poster. I am currently in process of starting a 55 gallon freshwater planted tank. I am unsure on what type of Canister filter I should get for it since what...

    I'm planning to upgrade my current filter (Aquaclear 50) and get an Eheim classic canister filter. My tank is heavily planted and pretty well stocked with fish. I've read a bunch of reviews on these filters but still can't figure out whether I should get the 2213 model or the 2215. I'm thinking...

    Greetings, I'm trying to get parts together for a weekend project to plumb my Fluval 206 canister to a 30gal I haven't yet put to use. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. As I understand it: My 206 canister hoses are 5/8" ID and it flows 205gph. Anyone have any math on whether or not...

    G'day guys. I am going to upgrade my Aqua One AR850 165 liter aquarium to be able to keep plants a whole lot better, but I don't know what to buy! I know I will be wanting to replace the crappy filter with some sort of canister filter, but what one should I choose? (I am pretty much set on a...

    I have a Eheim Classic 2217 Canister Filter for sale. SOLD Excellent condition. Used it for about a year. Too large for my current aquarium. Included: filter head, canister, canister trays, intake/output quick connects Intake tube/Output Spray Bar and tubing are NOT included. (These...

    Hey guys, Quick question. I only have limited space in the cupboard under my tank, and it only has one hole in the back of it for all tubing and cords to go through. The cupboard is more for a computer tower, so the hole is close to the bottom. Can the tubing on the canister be (gently)...

    Hey guys, This is my first post here, so I'd like to say hello! Also, thanks in advance for all the help I know you'll be, and perhaps sorry if my ignorance is less than tolerable. Anyway, I should preface by saying I have kept a few tanks before. All tropical and I'd say quite successful...

    So I'm hopefully going to be setting up a 150 gallon tank this summer, depending on when it feels like jumping from my lawn into the house (I've started calling it the transparent white elephant since it's been waiting for a good two months at this point, jesus is that thing heavy). It came with...

    I have a 84G tank (48"x17"x24") with a FX5 filter. Is it best to have the intake/outtake on one side to create a circular motion or to put one on each side for a side for a 1 direction flow.

    Looking into buying one for 46g planted tank with fish. May use as supplemental filtration/water polishing along with Marineland Penguin BIO-wheel 200 power filter or as primary filtration. Anyone using this specific filter? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Looking for concerns about...

    Last night at three AM, the aqua clear 70 on my fifty gallon started getting louder and louder, started grinding, and when I took it all apart to try to clean it, the motor was smoking and the metal rod in the motor was bent to the side. No idea how this happened, but now I'm looking for a new...

    Hi everyone! I'm new here, but I hope I am going to fit into the community fine. English is not my native language so sorry for the mistakes in my sentences. I'm new to planted aquarium so naturally I have a questions. I have 240 liter (4 foot tank) tank running at the moment with crystal...

    Howdy, I'm looking to start a new 12gal long and had some questions regarding filtration. I've already decided on the Eheim classic canister. With this tank being a long tank, it seems the common advice is to considerably up the flow rate to compensate for dead areas. Furthermore, to keep...

    I am interested in getting a new CO2 setup for my aquarium and I have been looking at a 5lb aluminum CO2 canister and so far my preference for dual stage regulators is the Milwaukee ma957. But for my 60-p, the co2 canister will be on display as it won't be inside of a cabinet and so I was...
