great quality but not very much benefit for marine tank

Installation and Operation I had this unit years ago when I ran freshwater tanks, and I did use it on my first marine system. It's a good product that's pretty easy to install, though it's not without a few hiccups. You have secure both the inlet and outlet hoses for the filter, and that may require a bit of effort. Once it's setup, though, it works pretty much without much attention. It is a challenge to get it primed on first use (or after maintenance), but I like the valve system that keeps water in the lines if you're just cleaning out the reactor.


Performance vs. Expectations Per it's design, this filter works very well. It's silent and pumps water consistently. In the few years I used it, I never had it fail or lose pumping power. So while I'm not inclined to agree with the philosophy of using these filters on marine aquariums these days, this unit does work well compared to how it's designed.


Value for money Again, for a marine tank this isnt a great filter. The idea of trapping wastes in a filter like this is usually bad news, so spending a number of hundreds of dollars on a canister filter is hard to justify. If you have a really big need that this unit fills, it's certainly a quality filter, but otherwise I don't think it's a great investment.


Liked about it There are a lot of great things about this canister filter. It works well, the valve system makes maintenance a snap, it's dead silent, and I've never noticed a loss in flow throughout a few years of use. In terms of canister filters, this is probably as good as they get.


Didn't like No real complaints about this capability or performance of this filter, but as I noted earlier they don't really apply well to marine tanks and for the money I don't think it's a great investment.

Another Quality Eheim

General This is another quality canister filter from Eheim. This company just turns out gem after gem, and the Eheim 2026 is no exception to this. The inclusion of media baskets makes this filter easier to clean than the classic line canisters. If you don't like the added work that it takes to clean the classic line filters, then this line is the line for you.


Liked about it Easy setup, easy to prime, easy to clean. Great filtering capacity.


Didn't like Expensive
