Eihem Aquarium Filters: A German Made Aquarium Filter

EHEIM is a German byword indicating high quality.

EHEIM Aquatics Group was formed in 2004 by the merger of three major European aquatics brands: EHEIM, mp, and JGER. Each one is a byword for quality, and they are all created in Germany. Since 2012, all products and services have been administered solely under the EHEIM brand. Gunther Eheim, the engineer who created EHEIM in 1949, began by creating technical toys. In the 1960s, EHEIM invented the world’s first aquarium suction filter, ushering in a new era for Eihem Aquarium Filters and ornamental fish aquariums worldwide.
