COODIA First Impressions

"Absolutely!"

They like lining up and swimming against it. I bought this to address an algae bloom. It's totally silent, runs very cool, and is reliable so far. Everything is still clear 4 days later. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current. I came home to a bloom explosion and water that looked like kiwi sangria. I had to harness the power of the Sun and dunk it into my tank but it worked.

COODIA Final Thoughts

"No complaints."

I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed. I was skeptical because of the price, but this thing really is a game changer! You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often. The best price by far from anything i could find online. If you have a Biocube 29 HQI, this is a great choice at a reasonable price. Highly recommend as substitute tubing for your canister filters. It tasted delicious and looked great in my glass.

Sicce SIC115 First Impressions

"Still happy."

I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. Best thing I've gotten for my tank in the year we’ve been fighting the algae issue. I made a highball last night with it. It's totally silent, runs very cool, and is reliable so far. Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. My loft gets lots of sun, so algae is a constant battle in my 60 gallon. The Seller quickly replaced the Venturi pump for me.

Sicce SIC115 Final Thoughts

"30 gal tank."

I have high end pumps by Eheim and Danner for high flow applications. Brand new out of the box and a great price. Easy to use, but has no instructions, at least mine didn't. I put it in the aquarium, and took the first pic five minutes later. I had to take it out of the tank and pull off the cover to see if the light was on. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed.

"Great Pump."

Also, added Value Pack-- Bonded Blue& White Poly Filter Pad Floss 600-square-inches. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. I removed the old pump from my Protein Skimmer and put this one in place. Second pic was taken 10 days later. Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5. I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it.

Maxmoral Final Thoughts

"The water is gorgeous."

I was happy to find the same barracuda pump at a reasonable price. I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived. Until my local shop told me to get Eheims. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. There are two pieces of wood among the rocks. This had turned my tank from a black algae mess to Crystal clear. Also, added Value Pack-- Bonded Blue& White Poly Filter Pad Floss 600-square-inches.

Koller Products TM1080 First Impressions

"Functions as described."

Until my local shop told me to get Eheims. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. Also, some of the connecting pieces are a little loose fitting. It replaced a Quiet1One 9000 pump which was nothing but trouble since I installed it. It was a great relief and manage to order this item at amazon. The unit is larger than I expected. Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly.

Koller Products TM1080 Final Thoughts

"Great pump."

Company is very responsive to any questions or concerns. I felt that was way to soon so I refused to purchase another from them. A must for keeping ick at bay and snails and keeps you're water pretty too. I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed. I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed. I wasn't sure it was even on when I plugged it in. Then there seemed to be an algal bloom.

"Oh, and one more thing."

I purchased this replacement since my RIO HF8 died just after 3 years. Not noisy, fine bubbles, fair price. I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived. I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. If you have a Biocube 29 HQI, this is a great choice at a reasonable price. I had to take it out of the tank and pull off the cover to see if the light was on. It's not very loud, but not silent either.

Eheim 207106 First Impressions

"Amazing output."

The water is clearer than I've ever seen it. Another few days and a surface wipe down and I suspect I'll have crystal clear water. Eheim has always been a dependable product. Eheim is one of the best filters out there. Any tight squeeze and it wants to start a little kink. Brand new out of the box and a great price.

Eheim 207106 Final Thoughts

"Does the job."

The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on. I was skeptical because of the price, but this thing really is a game changer! The flow rate is great for my 20 gallon. If you have turtles and want to circulate the air around this is for you! Bak Pak replacement worked great for me. This new whisper quiet Eheim 1000 pump has solved all my water quality problems. Any tight squeeze and it wants to start a little kink.

7. Lifegard Aquatics (2 Pack) 3/4-Inch Double Threaded Bulkheads

Lifegard Aquatics First Impressions

"I love this pump."

Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it. I was skeptical because of the price, but this thing really is a game changer! Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. Lamp is impossible to see during the day. Hopefully I can get at least 5 years out of this little pump.

"Or leak water all over."

Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. It replaced a Quiet1One 9000 pump which was nothing but trouble since I installed it. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. Eheim is one of the best filters out there. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. It was a great relief and manage to order this item at amazon.

Very nice pump for my Phosphate reactor. The flow rate is great for my 20 gallon. Just what I needed to fix my filter and avoid paying 200 bucks for a new one. Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5. They are some of the quietest pumps on the market!

Doing the math, this system should be able to run for almost a year. Bak Pak replacement worked great for me. It was a great relief and manage to order this item at amazon. Work well till the pump itself died. The pump is quiet and energy efficeint. Hopefully I can get at least 5 years out of this little pump. Very well-made product and fits on a filter I am using that is not from this company.
