The Eheim Ecco filter is the most power efficient canister on the market today. Simple to set up and maintain, the priming mechanism is also the handle! Ecco filters provide biological, chemical and mechanical filtration. The blue prefilter collects gross particulate efficiently to provide optimum water flow and longer intervals between cleanings. Eheim quality that is so easy and convenient .
Position the tubing in your tank, attach and open the quick release valves, lower the handle till you hear it click , then immediately raise the handle till you hear it click again and the Ecco will begin to fill itself. When the fill has completed, simply plug and play.

- Great filter Review by Beth
I've had a 2236 for 8 years for a large res turtle, and it has always worked great. It can hold lots of filter media and is really easy to clean. Last week my turtle somehow wedged the intake above the water line while I was at work. It burnt out the pump motor. I immediately ordered a new one. The Pro version of the 2236 that is the current model has a new filter basket set up that is not as ideal for a messy turtle tank as the original. I need prefiltering before the blue coarse filter pad that now has to be first due to its easy access position. Great for a fish tank. Fortunately the only difference is the filter baskets. I just put the new top that has the motor in it on my current filter. Now I have a full set of spare parts. (Posted on 3/18/14)
- yay Review by Brandie
I've been using two powerhead biowheel filters for a long time on my 75g tank. While they worked well... it was time to upgrade. I had been looking over this canister filter and decided to take the plunge. SUPER happy with it! It is so quiet sometimes I have to look at the tank to make sure it's running. It was super easy to set up and even though I've read other reviews on other sites that the 2236 version won't be enough for a 75g tank, it works perfectly. Value Pet Supplies also has quick shipping and low prices. I looked at this filter in a brand name store and it was over $100 more! Great filter, great site! (Posted on 10/20/13)
- Excellent when running! Review by Splash
This new Eheim 2236 Ecco canister filter will replace my previous now broken one. When it's set up and running, nothing could be better! It is silent, powerful, convenient, and even logical. But the handle is designed to prime the pump and start the filling action. Last time I cleaned it the handle broke. One tiny little grey cylinder broke off and that was it. I can't even take it apart. That handle has ever been cranky, but. Well. I wanted another one. And ValuePetSupplies gave me a great price. (Posted on 2/12/13)
