This a a good canister for smaller tanks. It can hold a lot of media (which comes with it) and it is extremely easy to set up, prime, and when you need to clean it it is very easy to disconnect the hoses.
Smaller cannister that holds quite a bit of media. If your looking for a cannister for a smaller tank that will hold a ton of media and wont break the bank the ecco series is def one to consider. Maintaining these filters is a breeze as well.
I have a few of these...and Im not a fan. I had the clip break that holds the handle on..which holds the pump on. I fixed one..but the other filter....a different one I didnt even bother with....I just used a clamp from my shop to hold it together. Personally...these are the stepchild filter in the Eheim line of filters.....no offence to step kids
