I had an old eheim 2028, but it was missing many parts, making this cheaper than fixing that canister, so I went this way. Honestly I regret that decision. The build quality of this canister is shockingly poor. There is a 3/8" gap all the way around the filter baskets, so the water bypasses a large quantity of the water it pumps unless you shove some floss in the sides, and even then is that helping?
The pump is quite noisy, but bearable, no where near as quiet as my old eheim however.
I also really dont like the suction cup mounts it includes, there is no way to get stuff to sit straight since they have so much ability to move.
However all that is livable, the biggest most annoying issue is that when you use the included quick disconnects to clean your filter media, it dumps a good amount of water on the floor. Yea, you can deal with this if your ready for it, but my old canister lost maybe a drop of water if you weren't careful, the pennplax is like 300ml or more of water.
Wouldnt buy this again, but I cant return it since I've used it, so here we are, it'll likely work but I'll also probably end up building a sump to get rid of this piece of junk.
Edit:. I now have a problem where the stock hoses have collapsed on themselves anywhere there is a slight bend. Means the filter is useless unless I spend money on hoses. Setting up a sump right now to ditch this junk once and for all. Not even 2 months old.
Se incluyen las instrucciones a detalle y son muy fáciles de seguir (segunda estrella), incluye 3 canastas para material filtrante, una esponja de filtrado mecánico amplio, dos esponjas de filtrado mecánico fino y una bolsita con carbón activado. Incluso incluyen piezas de repuesto y dos opciones para el ingreso del agua al acuario.
Una vez "purgado" (lo cual toma 5 minutos), el filtro trabaja sorprendentemente silencioso (tercera estrella), prácticamente no lo escucho funcionar y el único sonido que tengo es el del agua que ingresa al acuario.
Como material filtrante agregué bio-bolas (filtro mecánico) y canutillo de cerámica (filtro biológico), después de un par de horas el agua en el acuario es totalmente cristalina y transparente (cuarta estrella).
Después de 2 semanas el filtro continúa funcionando sin tema: no hay fugas, no se escucha al operar, el agua de la pecera está impecable, no puedo darle otra calificación de 5 estrellas.
Especificaciones del acuario: 60 litros, plantado, con peces dorados y plecos.
