"Give my fishes new life!"

I was happy to find the same barracuda pump at a reasonable price. Doing the math, this system should be able to run for almost a year. Until my local shop told me to get Eheims. I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived. Would have loved it if the new black colored hose was available at the time. And another and there's a decoration! I felt that was way to soon so I refused to purchase another from them.

"Nice compact design."

Freesea filter saved my fish aquarium. I have the Eheim 3000 also and both pumps are well worth the money! I did everything to combat it that I could. The most impressive thing about this pump is how quiet it is! Would have loved it if the new black colored hose was available at the time. This filter worked exactly as it should. There are two pieces of wood among the rocks.

2. Exo Terra Exo Terra Turtle Clean Biological Turtle Habitat Cleaner, 120 ml

User Ratings: 60 4

Exo Terra PT1998 First Impressions

"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.

"Does the job."

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.

3. Aquarium Equip Rain Bar Unit for 59" Fish Tank Outflow Pipe 16/22mm

User Ratings: 52

Aquarium Equip D605 雨淋管UP150 First Impressions

"Works great!"

The bubbles are noisier than an air-stone. Very well-made product and fits on a filter I am using that is not from this company. Just a quick note about UV sterilizers in general. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent. Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5. You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often. My aquarium is free of algae and is so clear and pristine.

"Works well."

It's not very loud, but not silent either. I made a highball last night with it. I purchased this replacement since my RIO HF8 died just after 3 years. Easy to use, but has no instructions, at least mine didn't. Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. Arrived soon enough, and packaged adequately. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer.

4. Laguna 3 Step Fountain Head for PowerJet Pump, Medium

User Ratings: 89

Laguna PT652 First Impressions

"Pump is quiet."

I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed. My loft gets lots of sun, so algae is a constant battle in my 60 gallon. It works, it's not too expensive, and I'm happy. You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often. Highly recommend as substitute tubing for your canister filters. The hose is high quality and hooked right up to my new Eheim setup. It would be best to replace the build in half that time.

"Works great."

Just a quick note about UV sterilizers in general. Doing the math, this system should be able to run for almost a year. I have the Eheim 3000 also and both pumps are well worth the money! Work well till the pump itself died. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. Another few days and a surface wipe down and I suspect I'll have crystal clear water. You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often.

5. MistKing 22260 Pump Fitting for Misting Systems

MistKing 22260 First Impressions

"Highly recommend!"

One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U. The two combined solved my dirty water problem within a few hours! The Seller quickly replaced the Venturi pump for me. Until my local shop told me to get Eheims. The water is clear and fish are healthy. My old Snapper needed to be cleaned and rebuilt after 6 years of constant use. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank.

"But it fits!"

I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse. Not a bad option for when you need an adjustment. I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed. The bubbles are noisier than an air-stone. I had to replace my aquarium pump recently after five years of service. This causes it to rattle and stop turning altogether. Thanks for Prompt service and I dig this RIO pump, helps keep my tank nice and clean!

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.

"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.

Eheim is one of the best filters out there. Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. The replacement came and it rattled constantly. There are two pieces of wood among the rocks. You need to replace this after cleaning the filter every so often. I wasn't sure it was even on when I plugged it in.

"10 gal tank."

Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. I bought this to address an algae bloom. UV lights do loose their effectiveness over time. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current. I was also impressed with the different ways I could use this pump. You could use them for circulation pump or wave maker.

User Ratings: 74

HANJIAONI First Impressions

"That said."

The water has cleared considerably, but it is still a tiny bit milky. Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second. They like lining up and swimming against it. The water is clearer than I've ever seen it. Anyways, I usually turn it on before i go to bed and off during the day. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. Only four stars because I cant tell if the uv light is working while it's on.

"Solid magnet."

It's not very loud, but not silent either. The best price by far from anything i could find online. The unit is larger than I expected. Until my local shop told me to get Eheims. I was happy to find the same barracuda pump at a reasonable price. I was also impressed with the different ways I could use this pump. Replacing my 15 yr old aquarium hoses due to old one hardening.

"No complaints."

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. Eheim is one of the best filters out there. German reputation for quality still lives on. Replacement pump arrived quickly and my tank was up and running like it should. I deducted one star for the price, but you certainly can't fault the quality. Eheim is one of the best filters out there.
