I just installed my Eheim 2026 Filter (after much debate on what to get).
This filter was installed on my 50 gallon turtle/goldfish/white cloud tank.
LEt me just say that those German engineers really knew what they were doing when they built this one.
I was temporarly running a Duetto on my tank... like I sais it was just temporary. Anyway... This filter was a breeze to set up and you can not hear a thing. It is soooooooooooooo quiet!! I absolutly love this filter. The only problem I ran into was to prime the pump on the filter. You are supposed to be able to push down on a button and it will automatically prime. Well, the way I have my hoses set up, it wasen't doing that. All I did was fill the canister with water and hook it up. It worked instantly.
My green water looks crystal clear, no more white deposits on the glass from the splashing of the other filter and the fish just love it!!!
I would totally recomend this filter for anyone with a heavy bio load like mine. Not a lot of fish... just dirty ones ... lol
