eheim 2213

    Ive been using aquaclear HOB on my nano tanks for years and have no complaints. Silent operation, pretty easy maintenance, and good filtration. However I will soon be setting up an ADA ten gallon tank and my goal is to remove as much equipment from the tank as possible. While I would love to...

    I've been pouring over retail sites and forums and I've seen conflicting comments comparing the Eheim 2211 vs 2213. I was hoping someone here with experience with them can help. My main questions: 1. Does the 2211 come with doubletap connectors? I keep finding conflicting comments about this...

    A friend just gave me a 46 G bow front tank including the cabinet and a EHEIM 2213 filter with media. I want to grow this into a planted tank . Q: is this filter enough for 46 G according to the eheim it should be but many people in this forum are saying it is not enough. should I get a more...

    Seems like a dumb question, doesn't it? I just got a new Eheim classic 250 from a major Canadian online supplier but it arrived with water in the motor housing. That strikes me as wrong, but it's been a long time since I bought a filter. I'm wondering if others have gotten new Eheim filters...

    Interested in buying a working Eheim 2213 cannister filter and lily pipes. Message me with pictures and a price if you are selling. Trying to set up my first tank on a budget.

    Hi all, Planning to start one new tank, size 60cmX30cmX36cm. Volume 64.8 liters without any substrate and all. Want to go for Eheim Classic filters with Bio Rio as media. But confused between Classic 2213 and 2215. According to the company website 2213 (even 2211) is sufficient for my tank...

    Hi everybody! I'm new here, and am in the process of learning the ins and outs of fish husbandry within a planted tank. I have a new 2213--less than a month old--and, all of the sudden, the outtake flow has become inconsistent. I've tested it in my sink, and the rate is initially slow, then...

    I bought a Eheim 2213 a few months ago and I love it! I have it as apart of my 36 gallon setup. It is very quiet I can only hear it if I put my ear up to the top of it. It's very easy to disconnect and reconnect with very little water leakage. I bought 20ft of filter floss and cut my own...

    Hi all, I've recently cleaned out my Eheim 2213 and after putting it all back together I've found that the pump is now making a racket (grinding/vibrating sounds). I opened up the impeller shaft and without the rod I can see that the impeller sticks to one side. Putting the rod in and the rest...

    yes i may be crazy but that's besides the point. I just got a eheim 2213 from a friend. I don't think it's been used for very long, maybe a year? I set it up today to replace my aquaclear 70. I was looking forward to some near silent eheim filtration. Well i get it hooked up and start it up...

    Every time I open up my Eheim 2213 filter to clean/replace media/whatever, when I start it back up again it blows an insane amount of gunk into my tank that I then have to do a water change to remove. Why does this happen and is there any way to prevent it? I have to take carbon out of my filter...

Should i get rid of the 2 2213's and upgrade to something bigger or just stick with what i have and supplement the flow with a powerhead? ti looks like I'm not getting enough flow...

    So it's come time to start filling the 20 gallon long that has been sitting empty since I transferred its inhabitants into my new 90G community. Because of my hard, alkaline tap water, it would be easy and appealing to do something African, like a shelldweller tank. But I have some equipment...

    I bought an eheim 2213 to replace my aquaclear 20 (noisy little bugger) because apparently they're silent. It has been running for 3 days, and still has air in it... I cannot for the life of me shake the air out per instructions. I don't hear a gurggling sound but I do hear a constant whirrrr...

    Hello all, I'm about to pickup a 2nd hand 2213 without an intake pipe and would like some advise on the filter and mods I can do to it. 1. I heard the Eheim pipes are 12.5mm in diameter, is this true? I was going to replace both the intake and outlet pipe with Boston Tubing anyways seeing as...
