Yeah. Don't do it on tempered glass or else a hole will make the glass weak and have a chance if the bottom falling off. Not a good idea to have sumps on tempered glass aquariums.

Got em setup. They are definitely beasts, I even had to crimp down the discharge on em a bit. Super nice filters and filter media. Just expensive.

I don't run any eheims now as they don't make a 30,000 lph pump which I run 2 of lol

Oooops forgot I do run a small eheim compact 1000 in my weir up to my pup tank and now you mention it its great but I don't work for eheim

I have been keeping fish for over 30 years on a high end level so have used many different types of filtration and I sold a eheim 2252 internal filter about 2 years ago that I had running for over 20 years which was running 24/7 and its still going strong with not even a new impeller needed

I base my knowledge on my own personal experience

Yes the eheim classics are a bit hard to get closed and primed but eheim designs have come a long way since that 30+ year old model

Theta plenty about eheim if I used canister filters again eheim would get my money

You need a screw driver to clean a fx5 pump what a joke lol

I think they're really easy to close and prime personally

Just thought I would weigh in having owned both brands .... I currently have a 125 running an fx 6 .... Water is crystal clear , holds more then enough bio media , and u don't need a screwdriver to clean it out .....

So you don't need a screw driver to clean the impeller or take the motor off that's interesting what do you use a knife

Ur right ..... I thought they were referring to normal cleaning the canister ... U need a Philips driver for the four impeller screws ..... Not a big deal and definitely didn't not deter me from buying it .....

I have the eheim 2262. Any ideas to decrease tank current but also keep discharge valves fully open? So far I widened the spraybar holes but it still is pretty strong velocity. Maybe there's a different discharge nozzle or something that can be bought?
