Specs from the Eheim website are; Filter volume 18.00 l Container volume 23.00 l
In comparison the Fluval FX6 (The other filter I was considering) has a filter volume of 5.9L. So three times size comparison which is huge imo. Should also mean less frequent maintenance which is a plus for me haha.
Also forgot to mention I added the substrate and I did end up going for Garnet sand over regular white sand as you also recommended Jules
That’s great size! The aqua one I have is around that volume but no auto-prime or anything
Ive got the 2700 which has been generally pretty good. Was the biggest I could fit in cupboard. Mine has a UV unit which I consider a waste of space in a canister filter and on the previous one rusted out.
You should invest in a dosing pump and you wont have to worry about dosing ferts.
I have been thinking about doing that but i enjoy the daily "hello fishies!" routine, especially with the baby angelfish I just picked up on the weekend. So cute!
Kind of tempting
Lol, I do like angelfish - always up to something and not hiding away.
The yoyo loaches are great but always off chasing their tail or something.
