Eheim 600 = reliable workhorse

Pros: Reliable, simple yet efficient design

This is arguably one of the most reliable canister filters around! These things last forever. It's perfect for something like a 75g tank. Even though the instructions are vague and somewhat confusing, you can assemble and install this unit in about 30 minutes.

Powerful Workhorse

Pros: Powerful, Large Capacity, Easy to Set Up and Clean

Cons: Not Self Priming

I use this as a "vacuum cleaner" for my sump and detritus off my live rock and sand. Quality build and performance.

Yes, I would recommend this.


Pros: Quiet, sturdy, secure lids clips.

Cons: Not the easiest to clean without filter trays.

Replaced another ehiem that I dropped and broke, sad day, workes even better the the Ecco series for my 75 freshwater.
