View Full Version : Tunze, Eheim or Aquabee?Election

Hi everyone,
In my new project, an aquarium 170x70x60cm, I will mount two xaqua weirs, one at each end.
I've watched all three bombs, and not which one to buy:
- Tunze Silence 3000l / h
- Eheim Compact 3000l / h
- Aquabee UP3000

What do you recommend and which of these is the most silent.
They believe they could put more than 3000 l / ha these overflows?
Greetings. Jony

I would recommend the Eheim or Tunze over the Aquabee any day of the week. I have a KZ skimmer with an Aquabee pump and its a PITA! Restarting after a power failure is almost impossible. Worst pump I have ever used for anything in an aquarium.

I use a Eheim 1262 as a return and its a champ! I've only cleaned it like once in two years and it runs strong and restarts without issue. Quiet and reliable!

If electricity cost is a factor you may want to go with the Tunze but I would check first with a Kill-A-Watt. I know my Eheim 1260 skimmer pump was running at 75 watts.

I have already decided that will be or EHEIM or Tunza.
But if you take the nose Tunza 3000l / H or Eheim compact of 5000l / h.
With that of 3000l be enough for Xaqua? as you see it?

Greetings and Thanks
