 hey  Guys,
   
 was  planning  to  set  up  an  120  gallon  fish  only  tank  and  was  thinking  of  buying  a  canister  filter  2217  from  Eheim.
 But  the  Lfs  where  I  went  to,told  me  that  the  New  JBL  Cristalprofi  e  900  is  better  than  2217,  in  the  sense,it  has  got  prefilter's,bio  cube's  as  filter  media  ,start  switch  for  easy  priming,4  your's  warranty  written  on  the  Box  but  he  promised  me  a  warranty  of  only  one  year  ,also  the  spares  are  easily  available.As  per  the  LFS  guy  this  filter  is  made  in  germany  hence  more  reliable  than  eheim  since  the  eheim  filters  are  made  in  china.Also  this  guy  is  an  dealer  for  Eheim  in  the  city.  
 
 kindly  check  the  link  below  for  the  website.
 
 JBL
 
 I  have  never  used  a  Canister  filter,hence  needed  opinions  from  anyone  who  has  used  both  filters  eheim  as  well  as  JBL.  
 Are  filter's  from  JBL   reliable?kindly  let  me  know.

 Alright  ,  Below  is  a  part  of  my  PM  word  to  word   Smile   ..........  the  rest  is  not  put  as  it  contains  pricing  information  and  discussion  and  that  cannot  be  disucssed  in  the  open  forum
 
 "I  use  Eheim  Classic  Series  (2215  &  2217)  which  are  reliable.  I  know  people  who  use  the  JBL  CristaProfi  series  who  say  that  it  is  good  as  well,  Again  its  a  product  made  in  Germany  and  from  a  reputed  brand,  so  it  can  be  considered."

 hey  guys,
 
 I  have  ordered  a  400  liter  tank  in  which  I  m  going  to  keep  a  couple  of  oscars.,kindly  guide  which  filter  would  provide  sufficient  filteration.
 JBL  Crisatal  profi  e  900  or  Eheim  2217.
 Although  their  prices,  flow  rates,  Canister  volumes  are  almost  similar,JBL  Cristal  profi  e  900  is  for  Aquariums  upto  300l  whereas  Eheim  2217  is  for  aquariums  upto  600l,
 
 your  suggestions  would  be  highly  appreciated.

 There  is  just  a  100L/H  difference  of  output  between  the  two.  Use  any  of  them,  but  with  a  good  bio  filtration  media  like  EHEIM  Substrat  Pro,  Eheim  EfiLav,  ADA  Bio  Rio  etc.  This  type  of  media  should  ideally  fill  80-90%  of  your  canister  chamber.
 
 Also  another  point  to  bear  in  mind  is,  EHEIM  spares  are  easily  available  compared  to  JBL.

 I  am  using  both  the  filters  for  my  tanks  and  they  both  seem  to  do  their  job  well  so  its  up  to  you  what  you  would  like  to  buy  depending  on  your  budget.
 
 in  both  my  filters  I  have  the  following  media  Seachem  Purigine  and  Seachem  Mateix  and  the  water  quality  is  just  superb.
 
 regards,

 Recently,  I  changed  from  my  factory-fitted  Boyu  top  filter  to  a  JBL  Cristal  Profi  1500  in  my  tank.  I  have  not  been  completely  happy  with  the  water  quality.  Now,  3  months  down  the  line,  I  started  to  get  a  rattling  sound  from  the  filter.  I  found  that  the  impeller  had  broken.  I  wonder  if  the  impeller  has  been  a  problem  from  Day  1  or  was  just  of  inferior  quality.
 
 I'm  yet  to  get  a  replacement.  Its  now  10  days  since  I  informed  the  LFS   Crying or Very sad  .  I  guess  spares  are  not  easy  to  come  by.  Does  anyone  have  a  contact  number  for  a  JBL  rep  in  Bangalore  that  I  could  talk  directly  to?  I  don't  trust  this  shopkeeper.
 
 Why  don't  you  also  evaluate  the  ADA  filter?  I  realize  it  is  a  relatively  expensive  initial  expense.  Would  it  pay  back  in  the  long  term?  What  do  the  experts  say?
 
 Regards

 Thanks.  But  unfortunately,  he  is  the  one  who  has  been  promising  me  for  the  last  12  days  "Don't  worry  sir.  You'll  get  it  in  2  days".  He  should  try  telling  that  to  my  fish.  They  are  mighty  worried.

 Hi,
 
    As  you  mentioned  that  you  are  planning  to  setup  a  120gallon  fish  only  tank,  is  this  fresh  water  or  saltwater?
 
   Regards

 Hi  Disney,  
 I  got  mine  from  Varsha  AquaMax  that  Vinod  mentioned.  But,  be  warned  that  it  took  21  days  for  me  to  receive  a  replacement  for  my  broken  impeller   Shocked  .  Spares  seem  hard  to  come  by.  21  days  is  enough  to  destroy  an  aquarium.  Fortunately,  I  was  planning  a  complete  rescaping  and  hence,  the  timing  was  fortunate.
 
 Regards
 KD
