Rated 3 out of 5 by Puckhog Can't get parts
Petsmart is discontinuing this line and you can't get filter pads or parts from Petsmart nor Nat Geo. You will have to find Eheim equivillant parts and order through the mail. Filter itself is very quiet and made with high quality. I had the cf30 on a 29 gal and had to add a HOB because the tank wouldn't cycle and amounts was really high. I would recommend over sizing. I returned mine and went with a different model because of the parts issue.

I purchased this filter less than 6 months ago for my turtle tank. The filter stops working randomly and is difficult to get running again. The top is very difficult to remove to change or clean the inside. It also randomly starts making a loud noise as if the motor is going out. Currently the only way I can make it filter is by tilting it on it's side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vbnm Great working filter
I just bought the CF80 Canister Filter, first canister I have ever used. So far everything is working great. It is the most quiet filter I have ever used, but it has the most confusing instructions I have ever worked with!!! They definitely need to work on this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KGNickl Great Filters (expecially if you get on sale!)
I have 29 gallon tank running a CF80 and couple 20 gallon tanks that are running CF50 filters. These filters are just relabeled Eheim Ecco Pro filters (2232=CF30, 2234=CF50, 2236=CF80) that are black/gray instead of green. I actually prefer these to the actual Eheim Ecco Pro as the black/gray is better looking in my opinion. At full price I don't think I would buy these and would just go for a comparable Eheim Classic instead. But on sale these for the price/quality they cannot be beat! I believe they were on sale for 50% off and had 20% off on top of that for online purchase w/ in store pickup when I got mine! So watch for sales if you want a great filter for a great deal!
