I have read good and bad reviews regarding the Eden 501's, some poeple are very happy with them and other not so happy. I guess it all depends how you use them and what you use them for. I might go with them in the end or a similar filter off ebay has I have seen them there, just similar filters seem to run at 200lph rather than the Eden's 300lph which I prefer.Garuf said:Except that filter is horrible in the same way a 2224 is.
I did have to replace the seal once on it as it leaked, that was about a year ago and since then never leaked again. I wouldn't recommend it for a planted tank unless it was a small enough tank and you got the filter pretty cheap, at the full price there are much better filters out there, reason I plan to replace it before I tear down my tank and start again with a fertile substrate, cheersGaruf said:Much the same as you really, poor turnover, adding an external heater kills the flow dead and If you tilt it it leaks something rotten, despite having a new seal.
