I was just wondering what people with experience thought of these filters...I am considering getting an Eheim Ecco 2234 for my 33 gallon long tank. I'd be interested in what you all thought of them vs the other Eheim filters as well as just general useability, durability, etc...
I realize I would also probably need to get the intake/output install kits with the spray bar and shorter intake hose. Thanks so much!

I had one for a couple of years, it was ok. It was in a heavily planted tank so you'd have to watch out for the intake for clogging otherwise flow will trickle down to drops. Fairly easy to service for a canister.

A little noiser than my Classics & Pro II's, but acceptable. My favourite eheim's are still the classics.

I have 2 Eheim Eccos (2232/2234). They are a good slow pass filter but I find them a little noisy. My Fluval 105 and 205's are quieter. XP's are definitely louder. For a 33 gallon I would recommend going with a 2236. JMHO.

Best Regards,

Stuart
