    I'm thinking of buying a Eheim Liberty filter for my 42L tank.

    Has anyone used them before or has anyone got an opinion of them?

    Regards.

    Guess the only potential issue with a HOB and a larger tank (i.e. bigger than a 20lt nano) is water movement. Internals or external give better water movement around the tank I would think. I would think filtration wise, they probably do a decent job though.

    Yeah I wondered about that, I surpose I can move my Eheim 2215 classic from my 50g thats currently empty, and buy a new one fro that when I set it up again in a month or so.

    Cheers.

    Hi, i have a Liberty HOB filter for my 27litre.
    filtration is ok. but like themuleous said, the problem is the flow. i dont see breeze on my plants. i replaced the foam with eheim substrate pro as well...
