 Hi,
 
 I  am  planning  to  buy  an  external  canister  filter  for  my  90  gallon  tank  (48  *  18  *  24)  .  Am  kinda  confused  which  brand  \  model  to  buy.  The  2  models  that  i  have  in  mind  are  eheim  2217  and  JBL  Cristalprofi  e1500.  Which  one  do  you  think  would  be  a  better  one  in  terms  of  performance  and  availability  of  media  \  spare  parts?  From  where  can  i  buy  it  in  Mumbai.  If  there  are  any  other  good  filters  for  this  tank  size  please  mention  theri  names  also.

 If  budget  is  not  an  issue,  go  for  Eheim.  2217  might  be  a  bit  small  for  your  tank.

 Go  in  for  2217,  Best  available,  Spare  parts  easily  available,  Have  been  hearing  a  lot  of  complaints  for  JBL  canisters  especially  with  the  impeller.

 Eheim  2217,  the  best  in  terms  of  durability  and  spares.
 Tried  and  tested  by  many.

 I  would  not  suggest  any  one  of  them.  I  tell  you  i  am  a  user  of  a  eheim  2217  and  it  does  provide  good  results  but  the  same  can  be  achieved  with  a  SUNSUN  also  which  i  am  using  on  my  second  tank.  All  do  say  replacements  are  easily  available  that  is  good  and  true  when  it  come  to  eheim  but  you  will  only  be  able  to  avail  of  those  (free)  within  warranty  period  of  1  year  which  in  most  case  the  filter  runs  without  any  problem  for  one  year.  After  that  any  small  part  will  cost  you  a  bomb  and  then  you  will  curse  yourself  eg:  a  16/22  connector  did  cost  me  more  than  Rs  2XXX  now  that  is  a  lot  expensive.  The  extenal  canister  (if  it  cracks  or  leaks)  cost  more  and  the  motor  pump  even  more  so  you  will  be  better  off  getting  a  new  filter  altogether.
 
 Give  a  thought  on  the  SUNSUN  models  they  do  come  a  lot  cheaper  than  eheim  with  nice  trays/containers  to  put  in  filter  media  in.
 
 I  hope  this  helps.
 
 Thanks,
 
 Ryel

 Hi!
       In  general  all  canisters  require  maintenance  either  be  it  X.Y  or  Z.  So  every  6  months  you  would  need  clean  it.  If  you  are  looking  at  efficiency  there  is  no  comparison  with  eheim.

 Thanks,

 Using  a  SunSun  myself  and  have  to  say  for  the  price  its  quite  a  steal.  It  will  give  you  what  you  need  without  burning  a  hole  in  your  pocket.  I  will  eventually  graduate  to  an  Eheim  but  I  can  tell  you  right  now  that  value  for  buck  at  a  moderate  cost  lies  with  SunSun.

 Hi  friends,
 
 i  finally  bought  the  Eheim  2217  which  i  was  planning  since  a  long  time  :-)  .  Havent  set  it  up  yet.  The  cabinet  needs  some  carpentary  work  before  the  filter  can  be  set  up.  One  problem  i  have  run  into  is  that  the  connecting  hoses  (inlet  and  outlet)  that  come  with  the  filter  are  kinda  short  for  my  aquarium  set  up.  I  need  hoses  which  are  at  least  a  couple  of  feet  longer.  Do  i  have  to  go  in  for  the  original  Eheim  hoses  only  or  can  i  buy  a  local  made  rubber  pipe  of  the  same  dimension  from  the  market.  If  it  has  to  be  Ehiem  hoses  then  where  can  i  get  them  from?  Also  the  person  from  whom  i  bought  the  filter  told  me  that  the  filter  can  be  kept  on  for  around  6-8  hours  per  day  and  this  would  be  sufficient  for  my  90  gallon  tank.  By  doing  this  the  we  can  ensure  that  the  filter  has  a  longer  life.  I  told  him  that  i  have  read  in  articles  that  the  filter  must  be  kept  on  24/7  else  the  filter  bacteria  would  die  off.  To  this  he  did  not  give  a  convincing  answer.  Please  let  me  know  if  its  fine  to  keep  the  filter  off  for  a  few  hours  as  he  has  suggested?

   Wall Bang  
 You  should  keep  the  filter  on  24X7  ....and  thats  very  true  and  efficient  method  which  is  to  be  practiced  with  every  canister  
 
 If  used  properly,  the  filter  will  work  for  years  depite  for  running  it  24X7
 
 You  can  get  any  hose  you  want...will  not  make  much  difference  
 
 For  eheim  official  stuff  ...I  know  only  one  shop  and  thats  aqua  nature  in  borivili

 dear  friends,  this  is  sriram  from  mysore.  this  is  my  first  post.  i  read  a  person  telling  that  sunsun  can  do  the  job  of  eheim.  sunsun  is  the  worst  filter  on  the  earth.  i  am  using  sunsun  with  uv  lamp,  tank  of  90(48*18*24)  gallons.  the  filter  media  is  ,  1kg  of  activated  carbon,  ceramic  rings  and  zeolite,  added  with  filter  pads.   the  water  turns  green  in  just  three  days  after  70%  of  water  change  Shocked  .  i  never  turn  off  the  filter.  its  silent  and  dont  leak,  but  has  very  short  spray  bar  and  cant  keep  water  mooving  alover  the  tank.  i  think,   small  tanks  can  be  benifited  by  this  filter.  BUT  DONT  DARE  TO  USE  THIS  FILTER  IN  BIG  TANKS,  i  had  burnt  my  hands   Sad  and  now  selling  it  off.  planning  to  buy  an  eheim2217.
