    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...

    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...

    Hello! I recently added a hydor 350 to my 20 long( it was on sale for less than the 250), and it seems the flow is super strong! This led me to a number of questions....... Is it too much flow? How much can I turn down the flow valves on the intake/outtake tubes before I cause long term damage...

    I purchased a Hydor Prime 10 for my 65 liter tank about a month ago. I've noticed that air tends to get into the filter canister after running a day or two, and the impeller will kick up a racket when the water level drops low enough, stirring the air about. The filter is situated next to the...

    I currently have a planted 46 gallon bow front (36" long X 20" deep) with a marine land C360 canister filter and an Aquaclear 70 powerhead(400gph). I want to replace my aquaclear 70 as it has seen its day and needs replacing. What is recommended in the Hydor Koralia line? I would like to go...

    My second 200W ETH has officially failed. This one lasted about 3 months. First one lasted about the same. IS there another external heater out there? I can't seem to find any. And if not... WHY?! Off to the store to buy another $60 heater (that I could get for half the price online) that...

    I bought a new Hydor 50W heater back in January 2012 for my 10 gallon. It it stayed on and would not cycle off, so I returned it to the LFS for an exchange. Strike 1 The replacement worked fine until now. It started to heat the tank to 82.4, even when I turn it down all the way to 71...

    Hey there, I just got a Hydor mini 15W in the mail to use in my 10G tank. The tank is running a small Aquaclear HOB filter and I was wondering if this was safe to try before I plug it in. If you bend the filter (it is pliable and thin plastic) it slides into the media compartment of the filter...

    My system is new. I have attached the pressure reducer to a new 74 gr cartridge firmly by hand. When I open the pressure reducer no gas escapes. When I turn the pressure reducer from open to closed I can hear brief puffs of escaping gas from the valve (interior?) but then it stops immediately...
