    Eheim 2073

    Yea, mine is noisy for a few days after a clean. The prefilter seems to trap air. The noise is grating. Giving it a good thump seems to help. It's a good filter, though. I like the combination of media. The water always looks sparkling. The only thing I would urge caution about is the flow...

    Eheim 2073

    I'll second that. I've got one. The only problem is no one stocks the foam inserts. I got my 2073 from Charterhouse. I emailed them in January - after spending about 500 quid with them over Christmas - and they said the foam would be in stock within a few weeks. They said they'd been too busy...

    The size puts me off buying one. I'm going to wait for the 2074e. It is basically the same size as the 2073 from the newer lower-power range, but it has the same power as the other electronic versions, plus USB, though I doubt I'll use that, unless I can hack into its metric data. I emailed...

    Can the mechanical filter remove nutrients?

    I used to own a Juwel Aquarium. I still do, but have long since ripped out the box filter. The Juwel Filter intake is almost at the level of the water-surface. It also draws water in through vents, but they have to rise up to the top to enter the filter. It means the filter takes most of its...
