Because my fancy goldfish were recently moved from a tub to an actual aquarium, I switched from a pond filter to regular aquarium filtration in the form of an Eheim Classic canister also known as the Eheim Classic The Eheim Classic is one of the most popular canisters and has a 4. Keep reading this Eheim review to find out what I thought!
It comes with everything you need to set it up: filter, hoses, valves and a spray bar. Other accessories are also available but not included.

Feel free to ask and we will get back to you in a couple of days. So, I was reading about your review for the canister filter and I was wondering if it would fit a 20 gallon tank?
If not, do you have any brand recommendations that would fit that tank size? So in general, the bigger the filter, the better. If you want to stay with a canister filter, then I would definitely recommend the Eheim for your size tank. The only main complaint people seem to have with them is the high rate of the return flow; however, the direction is very easily adjustable and the actual return can always be modified.
It is strongly recommended to go with a filter that is rated for double your tank size; so for you, start at 40 gallons and go up from there.
I hope this helped! It definitely helps knowing that! I had no idea that you should typically go for a bigger size. Now, is this model compatible with lily pipes? Nothing fancy. It seems that Eheim actually sells a lily pipe attachment, though it may be worthwhile to contact them through their website to make sure there is one for the model you are looking to buy. All are easy and durable but none are as straight forward and no nonsense as the classic.
Glad you love the site! I agree that the Classic is fantastic! I got it with the tank and the previous owner had a tropical community so I can imagine it was perfect for that. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. Eheim Eheim review Eheim review.

When it comes to your aquarium tank, cleanliness is vital to ensure your fish are healthy and algae are not present. Even the most meticulous aquarists know this cannot be done without the use of a quality filter, but choosing the right filter is tricky, especially considering all the options available. All the accessories you need for the setup—including the spray bar, the inlet pipe, and the hose—are included. The media is also included; however, you decide if the filter sponges or the loose filter media is suitable for your tank. Installation is basically mounting the pieces of the filter and placing the filter on the side of the tank.
