    Hi there fellow fishfolks! I have a 38 cm cubical tank with Anubias and ferns and river gravels as substrate. There are ember tetras, some lambchop rasboras, two male Endler hybrids and an otocinclus. Currently running a Xinyou xy 2810 sponge filter and a small Jeneca XP 03B HOB filter. I want...

    Hi there! This forum was a great resource to me back over a decade ago when I was fishkeeping on a shoestring budget, and now I'm back planning to start up my tank again. As the title suggests, it's a 45 gallon tank (36" long, 12" wide, 24" high) that I want to turn into an underwater forest...

    I've been spending every waking moment planning out my next aquarium, and I've hit a bit of a roadblock choosing the canister filter. I was initially planning to use a single Eheim 2217, but I decided to upsize the tank a bit. With a 64g tank, the 2217 will only give me ~4x hourly turnover...

    The tubes for my Eheim canister filter crimp slightly in certain places which restricts the flow of water. Are there any solutions to prevent this from happening? I'm sure I can't be the only one to experience this issue? How do you keep the tubes fully open and not bending in any areas?

    Hey guys, I am now on week 3 of cycling. I have a 15 gallon std. tank with a mainland penguin 100 biowheel filter, eheim jager 75 heater, and the Oddysea dual 24w t5 fixture. The tank is somewhere around 250 square inches, and the light is 2000 lumens. I have a total of 3.2 watts per gallon in...

    Hello, I'm having an issue I had with my previous tank/filter. There seems to be a lot of debris in the water. It's not cloudy, and I assume the debris consists of a mix of food, poop and plant material. I don' understand why my Eheim Classic 2260 isn't removing this? The tank has been up for a...

    Has anyone here used an Eheim Quick Vac Pro--the battery operated one? It looks nice, but I'm curious if it actually works. Thanks, everyone. :) Bump: Found this guy, too. I like its rechargeable battery and it can operate while plugged into the adapter. Nicrew Rechargeable Vacuum

    I have a heavily planted 30L tank with Eheim Ecco Pro 130 (2232). How many dwarf puffers could I keep in there? Some people have said 5, others say only 1. I was thinking maybe 3 or 4 since it is heavily planted which will diffuse aggression. I will be doing 50% water changes also. Thanks!

    I want to preface this entry by saying that I am complete noob, so please pardon any errors or omissions on my part. I want to say that I am highly impressed by the aquascapes that people in this community have created, so much so that I was compelled to try this out myself. I was thinking...

    I'm looking for a canister filter for my 30L/8gallon tank. Eheim seems good but I don't know which model to go with (classic 150, classic 250, eccopro130?). Those filters are rated above the tank size but people say that they have success with them. I also looked at the hydor prime 10 however...

Comes with bioballs, those porous white ring things and a sponge pad. Also has a spray bar. (I LOVE this filter. More than the fluval FX5 I have...

    I have a 12 gallon long with an eheim 2213. I just stocked it with some rummynose tetras and noticed that they have trouble swimming against the flow created from the intake. Theyre constantly facing away from the area around the intake, they almost look like salmon swimming upstream. reducing...

    Hi everyone, I've been doing a lot of research on which filter I want to use on my 17 gallon planted tank and I've come down to two choices: The Fluval 206 or the Eheim 2213. I've heard good things about each and I know each system has its flaws. I've read about how people love Eheim filters...
