"Flow is great!"

Any tight squeeze and it wants to start a little kink. So now we all understand; this thing is legit. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. I took it out of the package and it was perfect. Highly recommend as substitute tubing for your canister filters. Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. It also couldn't be easier to install.

Fluval A20015 Final Thoughts

"I'm a fan of Rio Pumps."

This new whisper quiet Eheim 1000 pump has solved all my water quality problems. This causes it to rattle and stop turning altogether. It's been YEARS and no nasty looking tubing. It works, it's not too expensive, and I'm happy. It drives a 5ft fluidized bed filter and CO2 reactor tower. Fit perfectly and has been working well. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile.

"Awesome wavemaker!"

This had turned my tank from a black algae mess to Crystal clear. Only four stars because I cant tell if the uv light is working while it's on. It also couldn't be easier to install. Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly. Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second. This UV sterilizer beat my expectations. The best price by far from anything i could find online.

Fluval A20026 Final Thoughts

"Works great."

I have the Eheim 3000 also and both pumps are well worth the money! I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. I have not found the replacement bulbs available yet. I put it in the aquarium, and took the first pic five minutes later. Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. It was a great relief and manage to order this item at amazon. It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank.

"Or leak water all over."

It replaced a Quiet1One 9000 pump which was nothing but trouble since I installed it. Arrived well packaged, brand new in original box, fast delivery via Amazon Prime. It would be best to replace the build in half that time. General and super ich cures seemed to only kill my wallet and change water color. The pump is quiet and energy efficeint. The most impressive thing about this pump is how quiet it is! I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived.

"So far, it's not working."

The pump is quiet and energy efficeint. Only four stars because I cant tell if the uv light is working while it's on. Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly. Eheim is one of the best filters out there. Not a bad option for when you need an adjustment. The Seller quickly replaced the Venturi pump for me. And another and there's a decoration!

Not noisy, fine bubbles, fair price. Thanks for Prompt service and I dig this RIO pump, helps keep my tank nice and clean! So now we all understand; this thing is legit.

5. Fluval Ribbed Hosing Replacement for Vicenza and Venezia Aquarium

Fluval A20012 First Impressions

"This worked perfect!"

Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. I removed the old pump from my Protein Skimmer and put this one in place. The two combined solved my dirty water problem within a few hours! Just a quick note about UV sterilizers in general. Very well-made product and fits on a filter I am using that is not from this company. Very nice pump for my Phosphate reactor. Replacing my 15 yr old aquarium hoses due to old one hardening.

"Good fit and length."

German reputation for quality still lives on. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. I felt that was way to soon so I refused to purchase another from them. The most impressive thing about this pump is how quiet it is! You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often. Not noisy, fine bubbles, fair price.

The black and white pic is the tight shot to show the setup. Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. I made a highball last night with it.

This causes it to rattle and stop turning altogether. It also couldn't be easier to install. I have a 29 gallon Oceanic Nanocube and have always had poor water circulation. It's totally silent, runs very cool, and is reliable so far. Actually its a no maintenance pump.

I realy liked the instruction manual and accessories. My aquarium is free of algae and is so clear and pristine. Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear.

"Good strong flow."

I took it out of the package and it was perfect. My loft gets lots of sun, so algae is a constant battle in my 60 gallon. The two combined solved my dirty water problem within a few hours! Only four stars because I cant tell if the uv light is working while it's on. I had to take it out of the tank and pull off the cover to see if the light was on. This causes it to rattle and stop turning altogether. The water is clear and fish are healthy.

Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5. The best price by far from anything i could find online. There are all sorts of things you can do and setup's you can apply these pump's too. Replacement pump arrived quickly and my tank was up and running like it should.

"30 gal tank."

I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. Until my local shop told me to get Eheims.

I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this.

I took it out of the package and it was perfect. The most impressive thing about this pump is how quiet it is! It tasted delicious and looked great in my glass. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. Replacing my 15 yr old aquarium hoses due to old one hardening. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer. Easy to use, but has no instructions, at least mine didn't.
