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.

"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.

Maxmoral First Impressions

"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.

"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.

"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.

"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.

6. Laguna Impeller Shaft Replacement Kit for PT8125 Submersible Water Pump

Laguna PT8127 First Impressions

"Flow is great!"

The water is clear and fish are healthy. The hose is high quality and hooked right up to my new Eheim setup. I realy liked the instruction manual and accessories. General and super ich cures seemed to only kill my wallet and change water color. Doing the math, this system should be able to run for almost a year. Another few days and a surface wipe down and I suspect I'll have crystal clear water. I removed the old pump from my Protein Skimmer and put this one in place.

"Adequate description."

I figured it must have been left over from manufacturing or it had broken in transit. The flow rate is great for my 20 gallon. The water is clear and fish are healthy. Tubing worked out great with use on my Fluval 206. Replacement pump arrived quickly and my tank was up and running like it should. Arrived well packaged, brand new in original box, fast delivery via Amazon Prime. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current.

"40 gal tank."

The water is clearer than I've ever seen it. I removed the old pump from my Protein Skimmer and put this one in place. Just what I needed to fix my filter and avoid paying 200 bucks for a new one. I have a 29 gallon Oceanic Nanocube and have always had poor water circulation. Three days later everything was perfectly clear. It tasted delicious and looked great in my glass. My loft gets lots of sun, so algae is a constant battle in my 60 gallon.

"Thus, the first gen."

Only four stars because I cant tell if the uv light is working while it's on. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. Fit perfect on my eheim canister 2213. Company is very responsive to any questions or concerns. It would be best to replace the build in half that time. Item was exactly as described and what I needed. This causes it to rattle and stop turning altogether.

Generic First Impressions

"The pump fired right up."

My aquarium is free of algae and is so clear and pristine. Best thing I've gotten for my tank in the year we’ve been fighting the algae issue. The water has cleared considerably, but it is still a tiny bit milky. With the amount of light I get I find it necessary to keep it on. Highly recommend as substitute tubing for your canister filters. Best thing I've gotten for my tank in the year we’ve been fighting the algae issue. It works, but you may want to get some type of adapter to address this.

"I'm a fan of Rio Pumps."

Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. There are two pieces of wood among the rocks. Company is very responsive to any questions or concerns. Closing the shades and a massive water change could not hold it at bay. Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. So now we all understand; this thing is legit. Fit perfectly and has been working well.

Replacing my 15 yr old aquarium hoses due to old one hardening. This is hooked up to work with my sponge filter in my 20High. It drives a 5ft fluidized bed filter and CO2 reactor tower. Everything is still clear 4 days later. I had to replace my aquarium pump recently after five years of service. Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second.

"Good and quiet pump."

Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. UV lights do loose their effectiveness over time. A must for keeping ick at bay and snails and keeps you're water pretty too. Just what I needed to fix my filter and avoid paying 200 bucks for a new one. Replacement pump arrived quickly and my tank was up and running like it should. I was skeptical because of the price, but this thing really is a game changer! The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on.

It works, it's not too expensive, and I'm happy. I have the Eheim 3000 also and both pumps are well worth the money! Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second. Then there seemed to be an algal bloom.

"It's perfect."

Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. The clip with prongs to keep the tube in place also doesn't fit and stay in place. The most impressive thing about this pump is how quiet it is! I came home to a bloom explosion and water that looked like kiwi sangria. The water is clearer than I've ever seen it. If you're settling up any Eheim filter system, use the actual OEM green tubing. The Seller quickly replaced the Venturi pump for me.
