Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      i just bought a 125gal tank, it came with a eheim 2017 filter, found out that they quit making these in the 80s, surprisingly the filter still works fine, but this filter has a 2 piece impeller shaft, anyone know why these filters have a 2 piece impeller shaft? also dose anyone know if i can use a solid shaft to replace the 2 piece shaft? i know that the eheim 2217 is basically the same filter, i guess the replacement for the 2017, i have read that the impeller from the 2217 dosnt fit the 2017 but i wonder if the shaft will work? any help would be great. thanks

      Do a search for 2017. There have been a few comments but no satisfactory replacements for this filter.

      Sorry I couldn't help more.

      you sure its the 2017 and not the 2217 that your thinking of because eheim hasnt made the 2017 sense the 80s, the 2217 replaced it. but i have read that the impeller from the 2217 wont fit the 2017 even though the filters are the same size, but im not sure if the impeller shaft will work, i just really want to know why the impeller shaft in the 2017 is a 2 piece shaft. and if any other one piece shaft will work in the 2017.
