Eheim Ultra G65 External Canister Filter (Pro 3 2071 / 250) w/ Media Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Most aquarium enthusiasts know about Eheim, a trusted company that makes different kinds of aquarium products. The company has been around for many years, and all this time, it has established itself as a leading brand in the aquarium industry. The company is particularly well-known for its reliable filtration systems, which are used by hobbyists and professionals alike.

If you're looking for a filter, you may want to consider the Eheim Ultra G65 External Canister Filter (Pro 3 2071 / 250) w/ Media from Pet Store. This is a very powerful filter with high output. Yet, it runs discreetly and quietly in the background. It is not disruptive in any way. Also, it is highly efficient in terms of energy consumption. This filter is proof that a powerful device does not need to use up a lot of energy.

This smart filter has a built-in automated self-priming system that allows for fast canister filling. The top of the canister has a pre-filter that traps large particles of dirt, dust, and other unwanted materials. Thus, only a few specs of germs reach the biomedia. As a result, you won't have to clean the biomedia as often as you would with other filters.

The Eheim Ultra G65 External Canister Filter (Pro 3 2071 / 250) w/ Media comes with safety adapters for hoses, each of which is equipped with an easy locking mechanism. This filter is deadly on dirt and germs but safe to operate.

Comments: This filter is great. Has only been up and running for a short time but it is as quiet as a mouse, cleared up the tank quickly after moving everything around and has been overall a great purchase.

Comments: This Filter is for a 75 gallon tank that I recent acquired. The filter runs silently doing its job. It is much quieter than my Fluval 206 on my 20 gallon. I love that media baskets in the Eheiem Ultra G160, makes maintenance easy.

Comments: I did hold off a little while before submitting my review, just to be sure. I purchased this filter to replace a Fluval filter, sold to me by my local chain pet store. If these chain pet stores are truly knowledgeable, then they know that what they are selling you will simply not work. Seems that they just want another customer, purchasing their endless array of filter pads and supplies. Lesson learned, caveat emptor! My Eheim came complete with the media and a complete inventory of parts. No missing parts issues. I am using this filter in a forty gallon tank with two red slider turtles. These turtles are just impossible to maintain in a clean, pristine, environment. They just relieve themselves too much and they pretty much are constantly shedding their skin. Enter the Eheim Ultra G160 filter. For red sliders this filter keeps the water crystal clear. I did substitute the media in one of the bottom trays to hold a mixture of carbon and zeta in a nylon filter bag. Finally, my turtles now reside in clean, crystal clear water. One note for those driving themselves crazy with red sliders. Do yourself a big favor and feed them in a seperate container. They will quickly catch on and they dont seem to mind being pulled out for feeding. Think of it as going " out " to eat for them. Heck, we all like to go out to eat dont we? So, Yes I am extremely pleased with my purchased and the filter is a top performer that has met my requirements and my complete expectations. Kudos Eheim!

Eheim quality - an old myth?

Comments: I started out as a big Eheim fan. You frequently read about the "rock solid" quality of their products and excellent customer service. A bit over a year ago I decided to "go pro" and invest in two Eheim 2071 filters for two of my aquariums, based on Eheim's past reputation and performance. The short summary: Both units are plagued with major design and/or manufacturing defects. Eheim service is very slow to respond, if they get back to you at all (email only). Others have made the same experience (ask Google). Consider a Fluval G3, which seems to be a much smarter design, according to the reviews (I wish I had bought these, the price difference is negligible compared to the pain you save). The long story: The first unit came down with a stuck impeller. After a bit of back and forth, Eheim acknowledged that as a known issue an send a replacement filter head. The packaging was insufficient, and a few small plastic parts broken on arrival. Luckily there is super-glue (not provided by Eheim ;-) ). Then the flow regulator (which is also the shut-off valve) broke. For some reason, the mechanism got stuck. Eventually, the assembly closing the valve broke, leaving the filter in a half-off position, which makes water changes an excrutiating pain. No response from Eheim, part replaced at my own expense (and several hours of work, as a safety mechanism prevents removing the assembly if it is not completely closed). Design flaw. The second unit suddenly sprung a leak (!), leaking water along the power cord. If you are a fishkeeper or a parent concerned about electrocuting their children, you will feel my pain. Eheim, what on earth is going on in Germany? Comparing it to the issues reported online by other customers, my best guess it that it is a faulty primer assembly - another known issue at Eheim according to various forum reports and the FAQ on their website. I am currently waiting to hear back from the apparently very busy people in the service departmen

Comments: I have had this filter for three days, I will let you know more after the first water change. I do love the filter, but... Pro: This is most quiet filter I ever had the pleasure of not hearing. If I open the cabinet door and put my ear by the canister I can barely hear it. It is amazing! I have the water flow at half-way and their is good flow. The water is very clean after 3 days. Con: When it arrived, it did not have the locking clamps for the intake and out take hoses. I went to Home Depot and purchased some clamps, under 2.00, and they work fine. The self-Primer does not prime. We did fill the canister with water, the primer just sucks. Directions for the filter are crazy. Support can only be obtained Mon-Fri. Conclusion: Installation, priming and directions suck. The actual filter, once up and running, to date, flawless! I love it it when it runs, but dread changing the filters out. Unsurpassed quietness.

Comments: This is my 5th Eheim filter that I've had the pleasure of owing. It's been the easiest to set-up and I love the idea of doing partial cleaning of the pre-filter w/o full disassembly. When disconnecting the hoses no water spills from unit or hoses. Makes working on filter in stand perfect. Getting the installation kits (included) was the frosting on the cake.

Comments: This is the third eheim filter I have had. All have been excellent. The G65 is extremely quiet and easy to prime. The accessiblity of the pre filter makes normal maintenance much easier. I highly recommend this line of filters for anyone looking to start a new tank or replacing an existing filter.
