    What media are you using in your Eheim classics?

    Hi all, I'm currently having a bit of a pickle with my Eheim filters. I have a 2213 running on an ADA 45H and there is such little flow. The filter seems to be working OK from what I can tell. At the moment it's packed (bottom to top) with ceramic rings, a coarse sponge, a good 3-4 inches of...

    Small Eheim pump; fish killer?

    For better co2 distribution in my tank I'm looking for a small pump for some extra flow. It needs to be as small as possible so I can hide it behind some driftwood. I also considered buying an active skimmer but these are all too big. Eheim has some nice small pumps but I read something about...

    Nano heater recommendations?

    I'm looking for a nano style heater for my Mini M, something that is low profile and won't distract from the scape. I was using an Eheim Jager but it's so obtrusive. I have tried both the Fluval Edge heater and Newa Therm Mini 20p but both can't seem to get the tank water over 20C. They both...

    oscarlloydjohn's ADA 60f

    For my birthday I was lucky enough to receive an ADA 60f and the kit to go along with it. I'll be putting a lot of my savings into this project too. I've been waiting quite a while to set this up, but I had to get my trial exams out the way before I could get going. I made a visit to Aquarium...

    Hello from Indonesia

    Hi folks, Nice to meet you all. I had a marine tank long time ago before the internet and I remembered how difficult it was to start and after two years there was a catastrophe and all fishes died. Then I abandoned the hobby. I didn't know about New Tank Syndrome or Old Tank Syndrome back...

    JBL Cristalprofi 901E - filter media upgrade(?)

    So I'm currently pretty happy with my JBL 901e that i have installed on my 60p. The very low amount of noise, and decent flow seems to fit the tank quite well. However 10+ weeks into the filters life I'm still seeing some pretty high spikes in NO2, despite low feeding and 2x WC weekly with about...

    Using two filters...

    Hi all, I have a 200L planted tank and am currently using a fluval 306 which I believe is not powerful enough. I managed to grab a bargain on a new eheim ecco pro 2036 and would like to use this alongside the fluval 306 by connecting the 306's outlet to the eheims inlet. As this is a new filter...

    Eheim MultiBox, a quick review

    Doesn't seem to be anything on the forum, so I thought I'd share my take on it. This thing is, for me, a lifesaver . I keep one aquarium, a thirty litre, heavily planted shrimp tank. It's my first ever, and it's been going for about half a year now. It's simultaneously the most relaxing, and...

    Eheim external filters - stated flow = actual flow?

    Hi guys, I want to know if the stated flow ( litres per hour ) for Eheim external canisters are anywhere near the actual flow. I have asked a few friends working in LFS and I was informed that Eheim filters can be trusted with the stated flow and that they actually test the flow with media...

    Hello guys, Okay, this is a Journal dedicated to the rescape of my ADA Mini M which can be found here. The rescape has been coming for a long time as I was never really happy with it in comparison to the Raw nature feel I wanted to give it. The Title for this Tank is 'Pretty Stream', and the...

    Ehiem micro skimmer 350 review.

    Is this the best £20 I have spent for a while? We all suffer some surface scum from time to time, in high energy tanks this seems to be more of a problem, not wanting to get into the debate why we get this problem, I thought I'd write a small review on the above product. I was supprised to see...

    Eheim pro2 o-ring replacement

    Had to replace the o-ring on my eheim 2128 this weekend. It's not been 100% successful as its still leaking a little but much less than it was at the weekend. for those that experience leaking from the head unit for all pro2 models (Eheim 2026, 2028, 2126 and 2128) then you can buy a new...
