I was very pleased after setting this canister filter up on my 40 gallon breeder tank. Instructions and setup went nice and smooth. Hose connections are extremely secure at all points, and you will especially enjoy the swivel in/out main connections ! What sold me on this filter after reading all of the favorable reviews, was the fact that it uses a spray bar return system. For any of you setting up a new aquarium and considering a canister setup, I cannot stress how much a SPRAY BAR will benefit your tank. You will have a healthy air exchange resulting in the best oxygenated water for your tank. This = healthy fish, and most importantly, strong growth of nitrifying bacteria. Plus, it sounds so sweet - like having a running brook inside your house. It's not so loud as to be annoying and in fact with the lid down is very low. The pump primes easily with a few pushes from both thumbs at the same time. Positive shut off at both main connections insure safe and dry...
Outstanding CF, I've have several Eheims 2015, AC70/110, and was thinking about getting a Fluval for my newly acquired 125g, but they're so expensive. Hydor comes with long thick wide hoses for more water flow, and enough power to pump that much water. Lots of accessories, and so quiet, I have to put my hand on it to check if it's still running. It's running on my 125g, and probably could handle the job by itself, but I like a lot of filtration, and I'm not disappointed with these. Absolutely blows my other filters out the water. OUTSTANDING! Mines been up and running now for about 2 months - if you do not see any updates, assume that it's still running like a top..Trust me, you're going want to get one of these..
O.k so I just bought this filter and mostly for the use of it's spray bar. I have a 20gal planted tank with mostly community fish (Tetras, Electric Blue Ram, Gold Ram, and Rasbora just to list a few. I had previously had a Fluval 206 and that too was an amazing filter, but they don't have a spray bar for there units. I do have to say that yes even though this filter is $$$ It is very nice.( Great Quality )
Set up was easy took me about 1 1/2 taking my time. Im not sure why others wrote bad reviews about this product this is best of the best.
My fluval was nice but I have to say I like this one better.
Good Luck hope this helps.
about my tank 20gal. Planted substraight old filter (Fluval 206) about 12 small fish
