Eheim 2217 Canister Filter
Eheim 2217 for a 135 gallon long - great choice!09/10/2014
By Sarah
After a lot of research I bought Eheim. Workmanship is solid, quality is great, they last a loooooong time, and I have other of their products that work well. I bought 2 of these, as the recommendation is to have around twice the filtration power for the size of your tank. The tank is well-planted with no filtration, I had removed the undergravel filters over a year ago, and it was showing murky water, floating "muck", just overall bad condition. I set one filter up on a Friday and put it to work. Saturday the tank was easily 70% clear. I set the second filter up Sunday, Monday morning the water was crystal clear, has remained so. The filters are extremely quiet. Start the siphon by sucking on the small output line on top of the filter (water must fill the curved output line OUT of the tank), close the valve next to your mouth and the filter top, reconnect the lines together, then open the valve again. Give it a couple minutes, plug it in. Came with all filter media. Recommended!

Best Filter EVER12/17/2013
By Amanda
Ok ok, so I haven't used all the filters in the world, but this one works super fantastic right out of the box. I'm seeding it in a 46 bow with used media for an upcoming 55. This would be perfect for anyone thinking about using it for a tank that size. I'm going to pair it with a koralia nano head for extra circulation. It comes with ALL media you'll need. Mech, Substrat pro, and 3 filter pads (coarse blue, fine white and carbon).

The one I received was damaged. The plastic behind where the clip attaches seems to have broken at the factory because one piece that is where you'd pry to get the head apart is also broken. I called up the guys over at Kens and they sent me a new head! No wasted shipping sending 17lbs of product back. I got the new head today and will return the other in the morning.

Love these guys. I almost never leave reviews so it's gotta be good. Best Customer Service.. Ever! Hands down!

Ken's was great, Eheim needs better instructions04/14/2013
By Carol
Kens prices, quality, and speed of service are always topnotch. Eheim, however, has terrible instructions, and I found online that I was not the only one who could not understand them. I finally answered my questions after much searching, and it would be helpful if Ken just put an instructional video on his site. I bet a lot of people who aren't even customers of Ken's would watch it. I gave the Eheim filter 5 stars because after I finally got it working, its a great filter.

I bought this filter for a 40 gallon breeder. Directions were not great so watched some YouTube videos and found those to be really helpful. I also had to cut the hose as well as the hard plastic hose to fit to my tank. Just hooked it up and it is working very well so far. It's also really quiet. Thought I got a great deal from kensfish since everything was in the box. Nothing missing. Nothing broken. And the price was great with free shipping. For me it was a good deal.
