Comments: Using it on a 55 gallon freshwater and so far so good. Instructions are poor but a little common sense will get you through installation. Really easy to clean, and it is virtually silent.

Comments: Dead silent. Quietest piece of equipment I have on my 40 breeder (except fanless led light). Have to touch it or watch water movement to know it is on. It is sitting under the tank. Stand is 36 inches tall and still moves plenty of water.

Comments: It's an eheim classic, proven design and works great when it isn't packed horribly shipped to you and has a hinge chipped off of it. Eh I'm sure it will work fine but ill think twice before ordering anything heavyish from here again.

Comments: I have previously utilized a canister filter as a sump water vacuum. Yes I said vacuum. I recently setup a Nano Reef aquarium (with live rock in the sump) and was in need of a way to remove detritus. I find the Eheim nimble enough to allow me sufficient maneuverability i.e. it is not too large to obstruct my access (lean over the canister) to my sump. The discharge and input tubing us soft enough to permit flexing to access all parts of my sump. I would have given this product 5 stars but find the pump motor a bit underpowered.

Comments: The overall quality of this filter is excellent. Built to last. Comes with everything you need. Only this lacking is instructions!! Had to do some research online on how to set up and get it started. The start up was difficult and hard to figure out once you got it all together. They don't tell ya that you have to "prime" the filter. But once I got it going it cleared up the tank nicely and haven't had a problem.

Comments: Really good quality filter,extremely quiet and efficent. Easy to assemble [once I threw the assembly instructions away]. Just used the pictures on the box, much easier that way.Primed it and pluged it in, no fuss, it's purring like a kitten. Water is already much cleaner and clearer. I am removing the last of the filter medium[bio balls] that came with my 29 gal bio cube. they are no longer needed.
