 Also  there  is  another  shop  in  Bandra  who  had  the  same  ,  some  of  our  IAH  members  from  Blr  and  mumbai  and  DJ   i  have  realised  are  much  cheaper  than  the  LFS  .

 Hi  Natbox,
 
 
                                                 
natbox  wrote  (View  Post):                
my  sister  is  currently  in  the  u.s  and  she  is  going  to  buy  a  filter  for  me,i  need  to  say  to  her  about  the  product  details.can  anybod  say  me  what  filter  to  buy  within  100$  or  150$.
 is  there  a  difference  in  buying  the  products  in  india  rather  than  the  u.s?                

 
 Ask  her  to  get  NLS  Fish  food  instead,  It  is  much  cheaper  there  than  here.
 
 Eheim  Filters  from  India,  easier  for  guarantee  related  issues.
 
 Check  with  Nytyn,  Aquadeep,  Rocky  for  prices.
 
 Rgds

 I  would  say  go  for  Eheim  but  buy  it  from  india  as  you  will  get  gurantee  on  it.
 
 I  would  recommend  getting  food  stuff  and  suppliments  from  there  as  you  dont  get  most  of  the  good  stuff  here

 Roopesh,
 
 The  following  LFS  in  Chennai  will  keep  Eheim  filters
 
 Gem  Aquarists  in  Numgambakkam
 Southern  India  Aquaculture  in  T  Nager
 Aquastar  in  Kolathur
 
 The  address  will  be  available  in  this  site.
 
 However  I  was  told  that  duplicates  of  Eheim(  made  in  China)  have  entered  our  market  and  so  please  exercise  some  caution  and  buy  only  the  genuine  product
 
 Thanks
 Bala

 Thank  you  for  your  reply  ,  Bala.
 
 You  mentioned  that  addresses  are  available  in  this  site...  where  exactly  should  I  look  for  it  ?

 Maybe  a  stupid  question,  but  still  no  harm  asking.   Very Happy  
 
 If  I  am  not  mistaken,  canisters  have  many  types  of  filter  media.Is  there  a  need  to  change  them  periodically?  If  yes,  how  frequently  and  how  do  you  get  the  media  to  replace?  I  don't  think  LFSs  carry  those  kind  of  filter  media  by  any  chance.
 
 I  am  going  to  set  up  my  4feeter  in  next  few  months  for  my  africans  and  seriously  considering  a  eheim,  but  this  is  one  of  the  points  that  has  made  me  apprehensive  about  this.
 
 Please  suggest.

 Filter  meda  are  meant  to  be  replaced  every  year  according  to  some  manufacturers.
 
 Some  of  us  though  have  had  the  same  filter  meadia  running  for  years  though.
 
 You  should  be  able  to  source  filter  media  for  eheims  easily  enough  and  you  can  get  filter  sponge  sourced  and  DIY  the  media  for  other  filters.

Those  are  not  duplicates,  just  made  in  China  by  EHEIM  to  lower  down  the  price!
 I  have  seen  both  of  them  together,  both  looks  same  &  performance  is  also  same.
 Comes  with  warantee.

 Getting  any  electric  unit  from  the  USA  is  suicide.   It  is  definately  cheaper  to  buy  a  filter  there  but  then  you  get  a  110  volt  model  so  to  run  it  in  India  you  would  need  a  step  down  converter  secondly  you  do  not  get  any  warranty  whatsoever.   
 
 As  regards  the  brand  I  have  been  using  Eheim  filters  for  the  past  20  years,  but  off  late  I  am  not  too  happy  with  the  products.   The  classic  series  i.e  2213,  2215,  2217  are  now  being  made  in  China.   A  good  external  canister  filter  would  be  a  Boyu.   I  bought  one  the  other  day,  it  comes  with  an  internal  uv  and  is  much  cheaper  than  an  Eheim.
 
 To  check  out  filters  in  USA  you  could  go  to  the  following  web  sites.
 www.thatpetplace.com
 www.bigalsonline.com
 www.marinedepot.com.
 
 Hope  this  helps

 Pradeep,
 Thanks  a  lot  for  the  info.  Will  keep  that  in  mind  and  feel  much  relaxed  now.
 
 Rocky,
 I  know  what  you  mean  Smile  and  thanks  for  reassuring!
 
 Vinayakan,
 What  you  say  is  mostly  true  but  not  always,  because  I  have  personal  experience  of  buying  electronic  stuff  from  the  US  that  have  220-240V  rating  and  are  working  fine  in  India.  You  have  to  ask  for  the  right  stuff  while  buying  and  of  course  it  should  be  available  with  that  rating.  Sorry  to  be  nit  picking.   Very Happy

 hey  everyone  Smile
 currently  running  a  Tetra  Ex  90  external  canister  for  my  3  foot  baby  pearl  arowana  tank  .  Brilliant  filter  !.  Had  got  this  down  from  japan  and  its  super.
 Also  using  a  ehiem  2217  for  my  other  4  foot  tank  that  has  gourami's  ,  goldfish,black  ghost,  denisonii's  ,  plecos  ,  and  a  single  heart  red  parrot  fish.  
 i  picked  up  the  2217  in  Bandra  at  this  place  called  Aquaria.  The  owners  name  is  Meeta  rao.  They  are  official  dealers  in  ehiem  and  i  got  the  2217  for  Rs  6,800  +  taxes.  came  to  7,400  Rs.
 the  phone  number  for  the  shop  is  022  -  26421400/65526185
 hope  this  helps.
 also  sir  vinaykan  how  much  did  you  pick  up  the  boyu  with  a  internal  UV  for  ?  and  was  it  the  BFU-15000?
 thanks  again  Smile
