Recommended Posts

Hey went out to my new 4x2x2 setup tonight and relised the brand new cannister has stopped working, Cannot for the life of me figure out how to get it going again or why it stopped. Is there anyone on the southside with a spare internal power filter that will lend to me till tuesday when i can get to AOA (or if someone wants to take my place concreting my shed slab so i can get there saturday, meet the truck at 9am lol). Will leave a money deposit so u know i will be back, I just dont wanna lose my cichlids :( . Worst timing aswell public holiday being tomorow and everything. :evil:

If anyone can help i would be forever greatfull and mbunamad and borntobreed will mow your lawns and do anywork around the house for 5years to also say thanks aswell 8O lol

AVAILABLE ANYTIME TOMOROW

Thanks and appreciate your time

Ok the new cannister is also stuffed now, been going for around 8 hours.. This is the 9th one i have replaced in the past 5 weeks. I found out the problem with the last one, the filter some how keeps warping the impellor shaft DONT NO HOW!

Oh well, time to invest in a fluval

There lies your problem

Just buying cheap crap

If you invest in a decent brand you will not have these problems

You dont have to go upto the Eheims and Fluvals but go for an AquaOne

I sell heaps of them have virtually no problems

Don't you mean that the white filter came from Guppy?

I noticed this;

was posted the other day as a recommendation. I don't understand how this filter can have an Aust. compliance power cable fitted that is rated for lower wattage than the filter's motor, let alone the UV lamp. I'm not very good at technical details, but if my past experience is any indication, having any problems rectified by the importer will be frustrating and unsatisfactory. Can anyone clarify this?

I've used Sacem Marathon canisters on two of my tanks for years. Simple design, Italian made, no frills but reliable and honest - the pump rate is actually what it says and not a Chinglish approximation as I've found with cheapos. Had a Marathon 1000 for over 10 years and all I've done is replace the impellor which had a worn stainless steel shaft (but still worked) and put in a new ceramic shaft impellor.

Unfortunately you can't get them in Australia anymore apart from the small Marathon 300 at AOA. :(

I need a new canister myself, to replace a crap cheapo that lasted 2 years, so for me I'll be getting an Eheim Classic I think. :wink:
