    Gutten Tag/Abend..

    Well Well.. Looks like I'm the first to review this Canister filter.. ;)

    I Can Only Say: Hydor did learned the lesson.. Very Well Actually..

    They Have Studied EVERY Single bit of the EHEIM Classic Series..

    They Done a Full Reverse-Engineering on the EHEIM Classic family..
    What are the Negative's and what are the Plus's .. Where and How Could we make Our Score..

    - The Overall design of the Top.. (Hydor Wins here) ..
    - Having a Stand alone Pump "Hidden" in the Top..
    - Locking the Top to the Canister body.
    - the Canister body Itself.. (Hydor is more Solid and is off Better Materials than EHEIM)..
    - Pump Power ... Just Wow.. Hydor Simply Wins.. As Most people Likes Powerful Pumps more than Low Flow ones..

    - You'll Need to Spend allot on the Bare/Naked EHEIM Classic, buying Double-Taps Connectors, Media, .. etc. Just to be Inline with The Hydor Prime Family.. It'll then be Twice the Cost of "Has-Everything" Hydor-Prime Counterpart..

    - Hydor Spares are Far Cheaper than EHEIM's ..

    - Super-Easy Priming... in the EHEIM Classic.. I HATE To Suck Tank Water with mouth.. :(
    Sucking Ammonia/Nitrite/Nitrate is "No Way" ..

    Don't get me wrong.. I Just Like The Word "EHEIM" allot.. EHEIM to me -Simply- means Quality .. auf bitte.. ;)

    ... Still my mid Size Tank with the Prime 30 under Test... But So Far, I Just Like it allot..

    .. Well.. I Hope i did a "Kinda" Fair review..
    Hopefully will be able to add more comments to this review as the Prime 30 gets Older in Service..

    Danke.. und mfg..

    У меня три канистры .Одна 20 и .две 30.Гудят как танки.Заборные трубки .пропускают воздух.У одной канистры сломался импеллер. .Очень неудобный запуск с заливкой воды в горловину. Лучше купить один EHEIM 2217 !
