i bought a rena XP1 and have had it for some months now (3) i pull it apart to clean every
other week (mechanical filtration only) it constantly had stagnante water in it and i got rid
of it, i replaced it with a AC70

this solved my film on my glass and my p's seem to be better as far as color, stress and
agression!!!! i can not believe a rena failed me. i have had an xp3 before and loved it.....
sad day to lose faith in a good product!!!!

just ranting here about a crappy canister.......those that know me, i am very particular
about my water perameters and filters.

Sorry, to hear about your troubles with what seems as a excellant canister filter.

Yeah, how was the water in the XP1 stagnant? Was the impellar loaded correctly, was it primed properly?

naw........all was installed correctly (i had an xp3 before) the xp1 was simple to install
stagnate water, it was brown goopy stuff like what you see at the bottom of a river in
the summer time........it was nasty

If it pumps water still, Ill take it and just use it as a pump for one of my dart frog tanks!

That is one thing that XP1 is good for, easily controlled pump for water fall/stream/drip wall in a vivarium.

Never used one on a fish tank, though I do have half a dozen XP3s and no complaints and two XP2s and no complaints there either.
