I always buy stuff I am unsure of from Petsmart.com or petco.com they both have no questions asked refund policies, that way you can avoid situations like this. I got suckered into getting a eclipse 3 system (it totally sucked), but I got it from Petco, and they took it back ever after I had used it for more than 30 days, how cool is that

Well of course they have 100+ tanks running in there and you can barely hear someone talk if you don't yell, so of course it sounds fine. I still have that stupid Emperor in storage somewhere

Is it quiet enough to make up for my wife's yelling when she finds out I want to buy one? My XP3 is getting louder and louder the more we talk about it

It's easier to ask forgiveness than permission
More than likely your wife wouldn't even notice if you had a new one sitting under there.
Of course you could give AP a call they many send you a new motor housing and impeller.

My 2026 arrives today - (replacing a fluval 204) can't wait to hook it up!

by the way, I had no problem with the Fluval, it is quiet , and does a great job.

Im looking forward to "less maintenance" with the Eheim. My tank is low in stock so im

hoping to be on a 3-6 month filter cleaning cycle .

I usually hit the Fluval once a month.

Can anybody tell me if I can fit a 2026 in a 40cm high space (open backed so tubes can go that way) ???
