I'm hoping you've already confronted your fears.....priming is not a big deal imo. Look up some YouTube vids for help, you can use gravity to fill it with tank water or just fill it with change water and then connect it and go.

I always use the Bio Media that comes with the Eheim canister filters. Has worked fantastic over the years. When I received my first Eheim filter, I had to YouTube how to prime them, once I found 1 video, it has been super easy every since. Simply take the output off of the aquarium, unplug power, have a bucket ready just in case, suck the end to begin the siphon, once you hear the water rushing into the canister filter, plug the power back in, and now your good to go!

 

Hope that helps!

I found a really simple way to prime the filter.      Had my dad do it!!  Perhaps I should make a utube video of my advanced clever technique.

 

 

Seriously though.. I had asked him to cut the intake tube since I dont have any tools and when I got home, he had set it all up and gotten it started (I didnt really ask him)  He  was a mechanic all his life so he cant stand to have his hands on any kind of gadget and not put it together.  

 

Lucky me.   Also ,not that he has it started, the double taps it came with allow me to turn it off and on without having to reprime it.

I use this stuff it's crazy how fast it builds up bacteria colony and it's crazy overkill used one box fit right into my eheim and rate for 250+ Gallons:
