Re: Big Eheim filters
The two Ehiem filters that I have are "corrected". The problems that were
mentioned earlier were all fixed. In a year I have serviced the big wet dry
once and the other one twice and the tanks are healthy. I do fewer water
changes in these tanks. With over two dozen aquariums in the house I wish
that I could afford to put an Ehiem on every tank. The wet dry canister
works fine on the planted tanks. Standard sump wet dry filters release CO2
because the water spends a fair amount of time exposed to the air. I have
found standard sumps to be better for bare bottom tanks and salt water. I
have not had very good luck with Fluval. They seem to easily lose the prime
and mine have broken. I like the Maxima 350 better than the Fluval. They can
even be used as micron filters.
Just my two cents worth.
