Who else apart from ADA does stainless inlet/outlets?
i ran ehiem 2222 on my 35l worked a dream no need to reduce the output either, even though you could.
I also have ran my 2324 on 30l which has...
I used a 2075 on my 180l and its an excellent piece of equipment,
If not eheim i would consider JBL
FYI -UV not required really
Eheim 2222 500lph great bit of kit.
I so missed this thread, a little late but here is mine
180l = Eheim 2075 (eheim media balls, plastic rings, sponges etc) plus eheim 2324...
what your doing sounds right on the mark.
Similar to my maine regime.
the Silicons spray is good as it prolongs the life of seals etc.
Hey totally don't get the argument for not using filters with built in heaters.
I have used them on my tanks for many years and had no such...
I have the ehiem and its excellent
I use a 2324 which would be ideal for a tank of this size. I used it on my kitchen tank which was 57l.
I do works brilliantly, check my lounge journal. After a suggestion from George
Ehiem make them
Re: Internal recommendation
if you are considering a hang on filter, these are the best i have seen
Very little as they are smooth bore aren't they, in my mind the trick is the installation. Make sure the pipes enter straight and leave straight...
not sure.......was a while ago....was it ripples?
The boys at Aquajardin have them installed on a couple of their nano show tanks, I noticed them when i was there. Looks a great bit of...
juts be wary of the uber cheap ones, i fell into that trap and the glass was really thin and brittle and they snapped!
I really rate the Cal-Aqua...
Re: Eheim Pro 3 600 - Swishing Noises
there is your answer by the sound of it.
CO2 building up in the filter and discharging once the "bubble...
Re: Eheim Pro 3 600 - Swishing Noises
Sounds like you have air trapped/or air getting built up inside the filter. Gently rock the filter when its...
Personally, I have an internal filter which I keep for back up situations. It's one of the fluval u series and it has real
Media. Could be worth...
from what i understand you can purchase the heater unit and control as spares, cant you ask them to provide them and fit them yourself. Have you...
Eheim do offer an alternate, their proffessional installation kits allow via extensions to drop the return to any level in the tank. They...
Ref the Ehiem, As suggested give it a good clean, especially focusing on the the impellor. Also a lot of people experience noises with...
What tank is this then?
I am using the Calaqua F2's the main difference being that the flow is aimed at approx 45degrees down thus sending the flow/current down, which...
might be worth checking "Bogwoods" journal has he is using the same tank and has gone through a lot of the challenges you are talking...
I ran my Up Atomiser through my spray bar, but about every 15 seconds a huge CO2 bubble would start to build up and make a loud gurgling...
The second link Chilled has listed is what i use, it is just a pinched normal outlet (if you know what i mean?), creates good flow.
If you can aim the Koralia down towards the HC, combined with a good level of light you should be onto a winner!
Excellent research and being honest i am not supriesd with your findings! Thats why i have taken the next step to the wide mouth eheim return...
yes it works very well with co2 diffuser under the koralia :thumbup:
I have used extended spray bars like you describe with out to much drop in performance the only way to know is to test it! :thumbup:
I have a nano on my 60l and its just about right! So that would suggest you need a bigger one!
More flow is better! :thumbup:
I feel for you buddy! Is this your first external?
One thing to reassure you with is that Eheim kit is generally very well thought of and...
Interesting, How do you measure this?
I think your right, I am a big fan of the pinched jet style outlets. I cant get on with Lily pipes as i...
Garuf, whilst i know you know your stuff, I would suggest that your opinion/comment on the flow of eheims to 50% of whats stated to be a little...
Following the 10x rule on filters for me is a good starting point. I.e 60l tank 600lph filter. Although in my 60l i use a 750lph external...
In my 6ol i have a eheim doing 750l p/h and a Hydor Koralia Nano doing 900lph.
This works perfectly for me, once my plants get over grown,...
Yes it fine to put power head above CO2 to blow round your tank.
I use a Koralia nano in my 60, excellent bit of kit :thumbup:
pm'd you :thumbup:
I have run in my 35l Deep Rooted in a previous setup a Koralia Nano, rated at 900lph as you say, plus my eheim 2222 rated at 500lph...
Or I gently rock mine backwArds and forwards and this soon releases any air bubbles. This happens with all external filters.
I had the same situation and my ehiem external worked fine, just harder to start it/prime it.
I suspect that you loose a very small amount of...
All externals can suffer with this i Vaseline or similar is v important! :thumbup:
Eheim every time!
But that's just my opinion! :thumbup:
Hey dan, hope your good?
Have you got any stone or rocks in there?
Londondragon, I too have just watched this video, its excellent!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Thats strange, as they can quite easily handle it. Was your tank particularly deep, maybe 6ft :lol:
hey guys i ran an eheim 2222 for over a year at the same level as the tank with no operational problems. Just slightly trickier to start. I had it...
i have run eheim filters on the same level as the tank b4. You just dont get quite as much flow. I ran a 2222 with no problem for many years.
based on my experience with eheim over the years, i would vote for the eheim.
For several reasons, No1 being flow and volume with accessories...
Only just found this thread, this is very useful indeed when looking at flow in a tank. Wish i had found it a few weeks ago. Although i am going...
I have just bought a 2324 eheim external filter for my 60l and it has a built in heater, shifting 700l p/h
