I reluctantly bought one from a friend because I needed one that weekend to set up a tank and there was no other option then getting the C-260 (220 - 240 whatever it is) for $50 (which ended up being a STEAL) or go to an lFS and pay over $150 for something.I use 2 Marineland C-series canisters. I've had both for almost a year now w/ no probs.
Everyone else seems to have good luck w/ Eheims. I've had 4 and none of them have been what you would call trouble free. I suppose I'm just unlucky.
What are you talking about????I have never used Eheim's, I know those that love and live by them and then others that buy them to see what all the hype is and are very disappointed.
Anyone that went from XP's to Eheim's just don't like eheims and think the cost was not justified.
Those that go eheim, usually never go anything else.
