i'm stuck on choosing one of these eheims for my 360ltr planted.it's not going to have a massive
amount of fish,but was thinking more of the turnover of water...well here's my 2 difficult choices

1..Ehiem pro 3 -1200ltr hr. price is £174.99
or
2..Ehiem 2128 thermo - 600ltrs hr. price is £179.99
any thoughts would be appreciated,thanks........

Hi Mark,

i've got an Eheim Pro 3e, and Pro 2 2028, but personally, i'd stick with the Pro 2's. The Pro 3's are very very large, and the normal version would not fit in my tank cabinet (too high), so i bought the Pro 3e, but i don't really use any of the electronic functions though. If mine breaks, i'll probably just buy another Pro 2.

I have a 2128 and don't like the heater part. It has extra cables that are a PITA when cleaning. I'd get a 2028 and fit a Hydor external heater.
