    I have this running on a 45G Cichlid tank. The spray bar is a gret addition, and is fully customizable for the size and depth of tank you have. I would recomend using silicon tape for all the joints and any air leaks in this filter make a huge problem getting the flow rate up.

    I've had the Eheim pro 3 Ultra G90 for about 6 months on one of my tanks, after my Eheim Classic filter died. It is reliable, and easy to operate. Apparently the pro 3 Ultra G series was an upgrade to previous versions that had a lot of problems with leaking around the seals or primer button. At least, I have had no leaks so far.

    Biggest selling feature for me was the priming button. Priming the classic version can be somewhat of a pain.

    Major hassles that I've found is that once it is stopped for any reason, you'll need to carry the filter to the sink and dump out the water. It will not prime otherwise, and no water will cycle in/out. So, if you happen to have a power failure, even if it occurs 5 minutes after a thorough cleaning - you will need to disconnect the filter and dump out the water...and unlike with the classic series, you cannot drain the water from the bottom...you must pick it up dump it. When you reconnect, water will flow down automatically, and can be started and primed again. Of course this means that you'll need to top up the water level in the aquarium again. The classic series did restart again after a power disruption.

    This drawback would make this filter design extremely annoying for any times that frequent water changes are a must. Even if the filter is totally clean, you'll need to disconnect, open, dump water, reconnect... anytime the filter is stopped for any reason.

    One time during the night, we had a very brief power failure. Knowing this filter's flaw, I dragged myself out of bed to get the filter going again. Another time, there was a power failure during the night when everyone was asleep. Didn't happen to notice until sometime in the afternoon that the filter was running with no water circulation. The other tank has a fluval filter, which always restarts itself perfectly.

        Comments about Pro 3 Canister Filter with Media - 2071:

        Agree with other review that if you experience a power outage the Eheim Pro3 will not restart itself. All you'll hear is light puttering/fluttering of the impeller rattling like its not properly seated and bouncing around.

        But I have added a solution which is a APC computer backup battery connected to both the Eheim Pro 3 and one air pump.
        Success proved itself during the wide power outage in Ontario during the Dec 2013 icestorms.

        Other than this the Eheim Pro3 works as good or better than my old Eheim 2215

        Best mod I added was purchase an extra quick release disconnect valve that I can attach to top of outlet pipe for quick drainage water changes.

          Great filter! I've been using Eheim products for years and they are quite simply some of the best products on the market. Being made in Germany (not China) says and means quality to me. The G90/2073 is easy to set-up, clean, operate, and you hardly notice it's running, because of the quiet motor. I look forward to my next aquarium project which will incorporate the electronic PRO E3 series.

          Please think Twice before buying any Eheim Products.

          From my own experience, they simply did not respond to Customer or technical support concerns. In my case, they totally ignored repeated inquiries for help.

          The head of the unit was replaced once due to leaking. Yes, water all over my floor. Plus the unit takes for ever to prime and work properly once put into service.

          I recommend that you DO NOT Buy Eheim Products.

          Use on a 55 gallon , very easy to disconnect from aquarium with no spills or leaks.
          Clean every 6 months or so depending on tank load.
          Super quiet , don't even hear it running!
          Can be heavy when full of water.

            I have other bigger eheims...this new design is great. virtually no bypass, easier to prime, easier to clean. Otherwise, all the quality you expect from eheim...its super quiet and great for my overstocked Malawi tank. It was also easier to assemble and had more configuration options than the older eheims.

                      I have had this filter for about 1 year and have had problems with a leak from the seal for the head or the primer. Have done an internet search and this appears to be a common problem. I have used the classic series for over 20 years and never had a problem. Would not recommend this filter.

                        In regards to the Eheim 2075... I'm thinking about adding this filter to my 155gl setup (I already have 2 x ML C-530's in my stand and the 2075 needs to be able to fit in between them... I have about 10" of space) I'm reading that the filter with is 9.3" is this accurate?

                        What is the dry weight of the filter?

                        Thanks.

                        I am starting up a 75 gal. freshwater set-up. I noticed a slight sales price difference between the # 2073 and #2075 models. The # 2075 has an extra media basket which interests me. Question: Will the # 2075 be too powerful for a 75 gal. tank. If so, should I stick with the # 2073? Thanks for your help.

                        Q:

                        Regarding the Pro 3 Canister Filter with Media - 2075 that you have on sale. I've read that some of these models have had problems with leaks. Has Eheim fixed this with later models?

                          The leaking issue found in the initial batch of Eheim Pro3 series canister filters has been rectified by Eheim.
