True, they were the first canister filters introduced to the public around then. Took awhile for aquarists to get hip to the eheims. Too weird looking compared to hob and corner box filters. Kind of a scary concept having water hoses going to the tank lol.

Very good actually. People liked them because they were quiet. I think that the motors were made by the Singer sewing machine co. Had to keep them oiled.
