Via Aqua Modular Canister Filters
Powerful, quiet, reliable, economical, and effecient...these are all the characteristics of the Via Aqua. I've had mine for 3 months, and I don't regret a cent I payed for it. People kept advising me against it, saying it's a cheap piece of plastic, but I took the risk and I'm glad I did. The Via Aqua 750 was simple to setup and install. As for filtering, it keeps my heavily stocked 55g crystal clear, and it's 'Eheim-quiet'! The media baskets are huge, they allow you to customize to whatever fulfills your needs. I highly recommend this filter!
Very effective filter, both in performance and finacially. It holds a fairly large amount of media, which you have to select yourself. It is fairly easy to use, very quiet, and a sinch to maintain. Like Raul I highly recommend this.
You will find VIA AQUA MODULAR CANISTER FILTERS have been renamed AQUA-PRO. I bought mine from EBAY and have to agree its a great filter, 10/10.
I invested in the Via Aqua 230 for my 90 cm tank, and now use it for my new 150 cm tank. It stepped up to the challenge very well, and I have no hesitation in recommending it! It can be a little temperamental priming it, but once it's going, great!
I've had the Via Aqua 750 for about a year now and am quite pleased with it. This filter is well constructed and fairly quiet. I found that putting the canister on top of a towel and a foam mat eliminated practically all vibration-related noise. Mechanical noise is now drowned out by the whooshing sound of the water through the tubing. I only need to perform filter maintenance once every 3 months or so on a fully stocked 200 liter. One thing to note: my filter is noisier after filter maintenace, but quiets down within a couple of weeks. I have only one complaint: I have always had trouble getting the bottom basket to sit properly. No big deal as I only need to do this 4 times a year.
I have just set one of these filters up on a 200 litre tank (by the way in Australia it is called Aqua One CF1000) and although I am new to the hobby of fishkeeping, I have found the filter to be very quiet and relatively easy to assemble. The product came with all media and hoses included which was a bonus. Like Sam, I too have placed a towel under my filter, not for the noise but just in case there were any leaks - none so far.
