Eheim 57110397 First Impressions

"Awesome device."

Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. Love it, I have used it here and there for filling up my tanks easier. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. I had to replace my aquarium pump recently after five years of service. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current. Has lasted a few years now without any problems. Any tight squeeze and it wants to start a little kink.

Eheim 57110397 Final Thoughts

"THANK YOU!"

Actually its a no maintenance pump. Absolutely love this product works amazing. So now we all understand; this thing is legit. My old Snapper needed to be cleaned and rebuilt after 6 years of constant use. I have a 29 gallon Oceanic Nanocube and have always had poor water circulation. The flow rate is perfect, and they fit well inside my cubes sump. Lamp is impossible to see during the day.

"Nice pump."

The bubbles are noisier than an air-stone. I bought this to address an algae bloom. It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. The bubbles are noisier than an air-stone. Best thing I've gotten for my tank in the year we’ve been fighting the algae issue. Arrived well packaged, brand new in original box, fast delivery via Amazon Prime.

Eheim 57110406 Final Thoughts

"Still happy."

Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. The pump is quiet and energy efficeint. You could use them for circulation pump or wave maker. Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second. It drives a 5ft fluidized bed filter and CO2 reactor tower. They like lining up and swimming against it.

Aquarium Equip Z021x6 UP First Impressions

"Strong dual action flow."

There are two pieces of wood among the rocks. They are some of the quietest pumps on the market! It would be best to replace the build in half that time. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U. My loft gets lots of sun, so algae is a constant battle in my 60 gallon. Also, some of the connecting pieces are a little loose fitting. There are two pieces of wood among the rocks.

Aquarium Equip Z021x6 UP Final Thoughts

"No issues."

I turned to Amazon, and sure enough, it was there. Eheim is one of the best filters out there. Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second. The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. The Seller quickly replaced the Venturi pump for me. I took it out of the package and it was perfect.

AquaIllumination First Impressions

"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. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. Closing the shades and a massive water change could not hold it at bay. UV lights do loose their effectiveness over time. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this.

AquaIllumination Final Thoughts

"It works great."

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.

"Last one ran for 8 years."

This UV sterilizer beat my expectations. If you have turtles and want to circulate the air around this is for you! UV lights do loose their effectiveness over time. If you have turtles and want to circulate the air around this is for you! Fit perfect on my eheim canister 2213. Very well-made product and fits on a filter I am using that is not from this company. I figured it must have been left over from manufacturing or it had broken in transit.

SunGrow First Impressions

"The water is gorgeous."

I can not say enough about this great product. My old Snapper needed to be cleaned and rebuilt after 6 years of constant use. 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. The best price by far from anything i could find online. And another and there's a decoration! It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank.

"Give my fishes new life!"

It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank. UV lights do loose their effectiveness over time. Has lasted a few years now without any problems. It works, but you may want to get some type of adapter to address this. The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on. Three days later everything was perfectly clear. Only four stars because I cant tell if the uv light is working while it's on.

"Awesome device."

The Seller quickly replaced the Venturi pump for me. Bak Pak replacement worked great for me. This filter worked exactly as it should. I regularly test for nitrate, nitrite, total hardness, alkalinity, pH. It's been YEARS and no nasty looking tubing. I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. I was skeptical because of the price, but this thing really is a game changer!

"Perfect fit."

Fit perfect on my eheim canister 2213. I have the Eheim 3000 also and both pumps are well worth the money! I removed the old pump from my Protein Skimmer and put this one in place. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. This filter worked exactly as it should. Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. I had to take it out of the tank and pull off the cover to see if the light was on.

9. Laguna Pivot Pin Fasteners for PowerJet and Max-Flo Pumps

Laguna PT447 First Impressions

"Good and quiet pump."

If you're settling up any Eheim filter system, use the actual OEM green tubing. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent. Lamp is impossible to see during the day. Work well till the pump itself died. This new whisper quiet Eheim 1000 pump has solved all my water quality problems. It works, but you may want to get some type of adapter to address this. I bought this to address an algae bloom.

"No complaints."

Thanks for Prompt service and I dig this RIO pump, helps keep my tank nice and clean! With the amount of light I get I find it necessary to keep it on. It replaced a Quiet1One 9000 pump which was nothing but trouble since I installed it. My loft gets lots of sun, so algae is a constant battle in my 60 gallon. I bought this to address an algae bloom. If you have turtles and want to circulate the air around this is for you! I would defiantly consider getting another.

"Pleased with purchase."

I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed. Highly recommend as substitute tubing for your canister filters. Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. I put it in the aquarium, and took the first pic five minutes later. Bought it to replace my stock water pumps for JBJ nanocube 28g. Absolutely love this product works amazing. Arrived soon enough, and packaged adequately.
