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.

2. Extension for Ecotech Marine Vortech MP10/40 QuietDrive Pumps - 6 feet

Generic First Impressions

"Good reliable product."

I felt that was way to soon so I refused to purchase another from them. This is hooked up to work with my sponge filter in my 20High. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it. The flow rate is great for my 20 gallon. I made a highball last night with it. The black and white pic is the tight shot to show the setup.

Generic Final Thoughts

"Still happy."

General and super ich cures seemed to only kill my wallet and change water color. Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5. Bought it to replace my stock water pumps for JBJ nanocube 28g. Very well-made product and fits on a filter I am using that is not from this company. Everything is still clear 4 days later. Also, some of the connecting pieces are a little loose fitting. Thanks for Prompt service and I dig this RIO pump, helps keep my tank nice and clean!

3. Extension for Ecotech Marine Vortech MP10/40 QuietDrive Pumps - 10 feet

Generic First Impressions

"Great Pump."

I was skeptical because of the price, but this thing really is a game changer! I have high end pumps by Eheim and Danner for high flow applications. It was a great relief and manage to order this item at amazon. The unit is larger than I expected. The water is clear and fish are healthy. I would defiantly consider getting another. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful.

"Great pump!"

After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current. Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5. I was also impressed with the different ways I could use this pump. It tasted delicious and looked great in my glass. It drives a 5ft fluidized bed filter and CO2 reactor tower. Three days later everything was perfectly clear. I bought this to address an algae bloom.

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.

"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.

Eheim 207157 Final Thoughts

"Oh, and one more thing."

Plugged it in and all was right with this piece of my world. I felt that was way to soon so I refused to purchase another from them. Another few days and a surface wipe down and I suspect I'll have crystal clear water. This had turned my tank from a black algae mess to Crystal clear. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U. I was also impressed with the different ways I could use this pump. I wasn't sure it was even on when I plugged it in.

User Ratings: 62

Laguna PT8126 First Impressions

"Run silent."

The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on. Arrived well packaged, brand new in original box, fast delivery via Amazon Prime. I did everything to combat it that I could. You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often. Just what I needed to fix my filter and avoid paying 200 bucks for a new one. Just a quick note about UV sterilizers in general. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent.

"OK, two problems."

I can not say enough about this great product. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer. The water has cleared considerably, but it is still a tiny bit milky. The best price by far from anything i could find online. I figured it must have been left over from manufacturing or it had broken in transit. I took it out of the package and it was perfect. I did everything to combat it that I could.

"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.

"Check it out below."

Love it, I have used it here and there for filling up my tanks easier. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. If you're settling up any Eheim filter system, use the actual OEM green tubing. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer. UV lights do loose their effectiveness over time. I have high end pumps by Eheim and Danner for high flow applications.

"Money well spent."

Very well-made product and fits on a filter I am using that is not from this company. Has lasted a few years now without any problems. Replacement pump arrived quickly and my tank was up and running like it should. Another few days and a surface wipe down and I suspect I'll have crystal clear water. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent. I had to replace my aquarium pump recently after five years of service. Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out.

"Everything fit just fine."

Until my local shop told me to get Eheims. Eheim has always been a dependable product. Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. I figured it must have been left over from manufacturing or it had broken in transit. German reputation for quality still lives on. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long.

"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.
