Hi,

I am looking at a tetratec ex-1200 (Unused) to put on my discus tank. the filter has decent reviews apart from a few leak complaints. What do you guys think? The other option is a jbl e700 (used).

The JBL is 700 lph vs 1200 lph and has less space for media compared to the tetratec too


I am tilting towards the ex1200. opinions and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Syed

The one that will hold the most media is what i would go for but the only advantage i find with the jbl is seahorse have most replacement parts for them

If getting the tetra tech get the ex1250 not the 1200! The 1200 is old stock and prone to problems! I had 1 replaced by tetra tech to the 1250 which is actually a great filter I've another 2 ex1200s here that both leak as well but never bothered to call them back!

there was a known issue with the heads on the ex1200 and tetra replaced these at no cost , i even got a free 1200 out of them which has been perfect for the past 5 yrs,
they are good but like everything you can bad experiences

Accept that some days you are the pigeon, and some days you are the statue.
