"Does the job."

I had to take it out of the tank and pull off the cover to see if the light was on. I realy liked the instruction manual and accessories. The flow rate is great for my 20 gallon. Also, added Value Pack-- Bonded Blue& White Poly Filter Pad Floss 600-square-inches. It was a great relief and manage to order this item at amazon. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent. I took it out of the package and it was perfect.

Eheim 207135 First Impressions

"Amazing output."

Three days later everything was perfectly clear. Highly recommend as substitute tubing for your canister filters. I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived. Best thing I've gotten for my tank in the year we’ve been fighting the algae issue. The COODIA UV filter is behind the big rose quartz on the left. Tubing worked out great with use on my Fluval 206. I took it out of the package and it was perfect.

"Awesome device."

Brand new out of the box and a great price. Then there seemed to be an algal bloom. The unit is larger than I expected. I regularly test for nitrate, nitrite, total hardness, alkalinity, pH. Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5. Highly recommend as substitute tubing for your canister filters. So now we all understand; this thing is legit.

Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly. A must for keeping ick at bay and snails and keeps you're water pretty too. I bought this to address an algae bloom.

"Light indicator well."

Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. I came home to a bloom explosion and water that looked like kiwi sangria. Three days later everything was perfectly clear. UV lights do loose their effectiveness over time. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U. Eheim is one of the best filters out there. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current.

"Last one ran for 8 years."

Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. It's been YEARS and no nasty looking tubing. They are some of the quietest pumps on the market! Company is very responsive to any questions or concerns. Plugged it in and all was right with this piece of my world. Not noisy, fine bubbles, fair price. I had to replace my aquarium pump recently after five years of service.

"The water flows freely!"

The pump is quiet and energy efficeint. Tubing worked out great with use on my Fluval 206. It also couldn't be easier to install. This UV sterilizer beat my expectations. They are some of the quietest pumps on the market! It was a great relief and manage to order this item at amazon. This is hooked up to work with my sponge filter in my 20High.

"30 gal tank."

The COODIA UV filter is behind the big rose quartz on the left. Company is very responsive to any questions or concerns. They are some of the quietest pumps on the market! I figured it must have been left over from manufacturing or it had broken in transit. It drives a 5ft fluidized bed filter and CO2 reactor tower. I deducted one star for the price, but you certainly can't fault the quality. Fit perfect on my eheim canister 2213.

Eheim 207147 Final Thoughts

"Nice pump."

Then there seemed to be an algal bloom. Would have loved it if the new black colored hose was available at the time. Absolutely love this product works amazing. The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on. If you have a Biocube 29 HQI, this is a great choice at a reasonable price. Water filter I carry to purify backcountry water when I'm backpacking. Easy to use, but has no instructions, at least mine didn't.

"Adequate description."

I took it out of the package and it was perfect. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. German reputation for quality still lives on. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. I would defiantly consider getting another. Work well till the pump itself died. Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5.

"I could see."

I felt that was way to soon so I refused to purchase another from them. I did everything to combat it that I could. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. This is hooked up to work with my sponge filter in my 20High. UV lights do loose their effectiveness over time. It's not very loud, but not silent either. This new whisper quiet Eheim 1000 pump has solved all my water quality problems.

"Check it out below."

I purchased this replacement since my RIO HF8 died just after 3 years. Also, some of the connecting pieces are a little loose fitting. I removed the old pump from my Protein Skimmer and put this one in place. So now we all understand; this thing is legit. The water is clearer than I've ever seen it.

"Love this spout."

Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. The COODIA UV filter is behind the big rose quartz on the left. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. Closing the shades and a massive water change could not hold it at bay. It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank. It works, it's not too expensive, and I'm happy.

Also, added Value Pack-- Bonded Blue& White Poly Filter Pad Floss 600-square-inches. Eheim has always been a dependable product. I regularly test for nitrate, nitrite, total hardness, alkalinity, pH. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it. This had turned my tank from a black algae mess to Crystal clear.

"Eheim is a great company!"

Bought it to replace my stock water pumps for JBJ nanocube 28g. The flow rate is great for my 20 gallon. I was skeptical because of the price, but this thing really is a game changer! There are two pieces of wood among the rocks. Brand new out of the box and a great price. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U. Very nice pump for my Phosphate reactor.
