Zoo Med 26372 First Impressions

"That said."

This filter worked exactly as it should. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed. I did everything to combat it that I could. I have a 29 gallon Oceanic Nanocube and have always had poor water circulation. Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. Just what I needed to fix my filter and avoid paying 200 bucks for a new one.

Zoo Med 26372 Final Thoughts

"They last a long time."

My loft gets lots of sun, so algae is a constant battle in my 60 gallon. It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank. Brand new out of the box and a great price. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it. I regularly test for nitrate, nitrite, total hardness, alkalinity, pH. The bubbles are noisier than an air-stone.

"I could see."

If you have turtles and want to circulate the air around this is for you! The water has cleared considerably, but it is still a tiny bit milky. Water filter I carry to purify backcountry water when I'm backpacking. There are all sorts of things you can do and setup's you can apply these pump's too. General and super ich cures seemed to only kill my wallet and change water color. Another few days and a surface wipe down and I suspect I'll have crystal clear water. The hose is high quality and hooked right up to my new Eheim setup.

"Give my fishes new life!"

Also, some of the connecting pieces are a little loose fitting. I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. Doing the math, this system should be able to run for almost a year. I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed. I put it in the aquarium, and took the first pic five minutes later. I can not say enough about this great product. I wasn't sure it was even on when I plugged it in.

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.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"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.

"Adequate description."

I figured it must have been left over from manufacturing or it had broken in transit. The flow rate is great for my 20 gallon. The water is clear and fish are healthy. Tubing worked out great with use on my Fluval 206. Replacement pump arrived quickly and my tank was up and running like it should. Arrived well packaged, brand new in original box, fast delivery via Amazon Prime. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current.

"Great Product."

This new whisper quiet Eheim 1000 pump has solved all my water quality problems. Replacement pump arrived quickly and my tank was up and running like it should. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. Closing the shades and a massive water change could not hold it at bay. I have a 29 gallon Oceanic Nanocube and have always had poor water circulation. I had to take it out of the tank and pull off the cover to see if the light was on. I wasn't sure it was even on when I plugged it in.

6. Laguna Fountain Head Waterbell for PowerJet Pumps, Small

Laguna PT660 First Impressions

"Give my fishes new life!"

Easy to use, but has no instructions, at least mine didn't. The two combined solved my dirty water problem within a few hours! Just a quick note about UV sterilizers in general. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent. Bought it to replace my stock water pumps for JBJ nanocube 28g. 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.

"20 gal tank."

My loft gets lots of sun, so algae is a constant battle in my 60 gallon. I regularly test for nitrate, nitrite, total hardness, alkalinity, pH. With the amount of light I get I find it necessary to keep it on. Actually its a no maintenance pump. Eheim is one of the best filters out there. Not a bad option for when you need an adjustment. If you have turtles and want to circulate the air around this is for you!

7. Laguna Seal Ring for PowerJet and Max-Flo Pumps

Laguna PT762 First Impressions

"Everything fit just fine."

Until my local shop told me to get Eheims. If you're settling up any Eheim filter system, use the actual OEM green tubing. This causes it to rattle and stop turning altogether. After two more days of running, I turned it off because of the current. The COODIA UV filter is behind the big rose quartz on the left. I can not say enough about this great product. This had turned my tank from a black algae mess to Crystal clear.

"It works great."

The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. The black and white pic is the tight shot to show the setup. Would have loved it if the new black colored hose was available at the time. It would be best to replace the build in half that time. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this. My old Snapper needed to be cleaned and rebuilt after 6 years of constant use.

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.

"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.

Company is very responsive to any questions or concerns. Bought it to replace my stock water pumps for JBJ nanocube 28g. The water is clear and fish are healthy. 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. There are two pieces of wood among the rocks. Fit perfectly and has been working well.
