Hydor cannister filters

959 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Bavarian3

I have two 2ft planted tanks, and it is only a matter of time before I move on to bigger tanks. Currently, I am in search of an external filter. No doubt, Eheim is the leading brand in the market, but I am willing to consider other brands. I thought Hydor's Prime series looks interesting. What are your views on that? Any reviews on the Prime 10 model would be apreciated.

i cant say anything about hydro, never heard anything about them. But i can recommend hagen and rena filstar xp1/xp3. Many people are very happy with them and they dont have the steep price of the eheims. It isnt as quiet as an eheim though, so if noise doesnt concern you, id just go with one of those. With cannisters its all about the size of the cannister to hold the media, and about the flow rate. Many people are happy with the jebo units as well, they are kinda eheim proffessional remakes. good luck
