1. Penn-Plax Airstone Coral Shaped Water Pump

Penn-Plax 54533001 First Impressions

"These being 1600 GPH."

Fit perfect on my eheim canister 2213. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer. It's been YEARS and no nasty looking tubing. I had to harness the power of the Sun and dunk it into my tank but it worked. Water filter I carry to purify backcountry water when I'm backpacking. I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse.

Penn-Plax 54533001 Final Thoughts

"Great Pump."

I have a 29 gallon Oceanic Nanocube and have always had poor water circulation. It's been YEARS and no nasty looking tubing. Not noisy, fine bubbles, fair price. The flow rate is perfect, and they fit well inside my cubes sump. Tubing worked out great with use on my Fluval 206. The bubbles are noisier than an air-stone. Very nice pump for my Phosphate reactor.

2. 100197-2" Champion Water Pump Hose Kit

Champion Power Equipment First Impressions

"They last a long time."

I have high end pumps by Eheim and Danner for high flow applications. I would defiantly consider getting another. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U. They like lining up and swimming against it. The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on. I came home to a bloom explosion and water that looked like kiwi sangria. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U.

"Thus, the first gen."

The unit is larger than I expected. I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse. So now we all understand; this thing is legit. Best thing I've gotten for my tank in the year we’ve been fighting the algae issue. Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second. German reputation for quality still lives on. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this.

"Pleased with purchase."

Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly. I felt that was way to soon so I refused to purchase another from them. Replacement pump arrived quickly and my tank was up and running like it should. My aquarium is free of algae and is so clear and pristine. The water has cleared considerably, but it is still a tiny bit milky. Tubing worked out great with use on my Fluval 206. It also couldn't be easier to install.

Renovo Water REN-M-09 Final Thoughts

"Worked perfectly."

I figured it must have been left over from manufacturing or it had broken in transit. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it. If you have turtles and want to circulate the air around this is for you! I have a 29 gallon Oceanic Nanocube and have always had poor water circulation. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. I deducted one star for the price, but you certainly can't fault the quality. It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank.

"Great Pump."

Fit perfect on my eheim canister 2213. The water is clearer than I've ever seen it. Best thing I've gotten for my tank in the year we’ve been fighting the algae issue. Lamp is impossible to see during the day. This had turned my tank from a black algae mess to Crystal clear. Absolutely love this product works amazing. I would defiantly consider getting another.

"Functions as described."

Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it. Plugged it in and all was right with this piece of my world. The most impressive thing about this pump is how quiet it is! Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second. I felt that was way to soon so I refused to purchase another from them.

Eheim 207107 First Impressions

"THANK YOU!"

Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. Also, some of the connecting pieces are a little loose fitting. It tasted delicious and looked great in my glass. Best thing I've gotten for my tank in the year we’ve been fighting the algae issue. I was also impressed with the different ways I could use this pump. Love it, I have used it here and there for filling up my tanks easier. Actually its a no maintenance pump.

Eheim 207107 Final Thoughts

"Trustworthy."

Has lasted a few years now without any problems. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. Replacement pump arrived quickly and my tank was up and running like it should. Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. General and super ich cures seemed to only kill my wallet and change water color.

Would have loved it if the new black colored hose was available at the time. I was also impressed with the different ways I could use this pump. Absolutely love this product works amazing. Eheim has always been a dependable product. I turned to Amazon, and sure enough, it was there. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer. It's totally silent, runs very cool, and is reliable so far.

MistKing 22255 Final Thoughts

"No issues."

I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse. I turned to Amazon, and sure enough, it was there. Also, added Value Pack-- Bonded Blue& White Poly Filter Pad Floss 600-square-inches. Only other issue I have is how stiff the tubing is. It works, it's not too expensive, and I'm happy. If you have a Biocube 29 HQI, this is a great choice at a reasonable price. Only four stars because I cant tell if the uv light is working while it's on.

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.

RIO NW2100 Final Thoughts

"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.

"A great product."

Just a quick note about UV sterilizers in general. I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. The flow rate is perfect, and they fit well inside my cubes sump. The best price by far from anything i could find online. And another and there's a decoration! It's totally silent, runs very cool, and is reliable so far.

It tasted delicious and looked great in my glass. I have high end pumps by Eheim and Danner for high flow applications. Only four stars because I cant tell if the uv light is working while it's on. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. Brand new out of the box and a great price. It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank. Eheim is one of the best filters out there.

Absolutely love this product works amazing. You could use them for circulation pump or wave maker. Item was exactly as described and what I needed.

10. Eheim 6850 Pump Cover for 1048 Universal Pump

Eheim 6850 First Impressions

"Awesome wavemaker!"

My aquarium is free of algae and is so clear and pristine. You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often. I purchased this replacement since my RIO HF8 died just after 3 years. It also couldn't be easier to install. Everything is still clear 4 days later. Any tight squeeze and it wants to start a little kink. I came home to a bloom explosion and water that looked like kiwi sangria.

"Thanks again!"

I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly. This filter worked exactly as it should. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U. It works, it's not too expensive, and I'm happy. Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5. The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on.
