I have a Rio 180 with a built in filter and my fish have all died due to the heater over heating so i'm in the process of cleaning it out and looking to change the system by using a external heater and filter.

Will the Hydor ETH External Heater and Tetratec EX700 be compatible with the tubing etc and run fine alongside each other?

I'm hoping i can get some advice please.

Thank you.

I can't see why that wouldn't work. The Hydor ETHs accomodate quite a wide hose diameter - I am using an ETH-300 with an Eheim 2260. If the Tetratec hoses should be narrower, just dip the ends in boiling water before sliding them over the fittings on the heater. The heat makes the hose soft and expandable. Once cooled down, it will sit on there like glued in place, and you won't have to worry about it coming off by accident :thumb:
