i really need to get rid of this eheim! its an eheim 2215 with hoses and spraybar/intake. it is missing the suction cups for the spray bar, but i rigged it with wires to hook over the edge. with quick connects and media. im looking for an eheim 2213 hopefully with lily pipes to offset the cost difference! send me a PM if you have a spare 2213, even if you dont have lily pipes! im willing to sell for $70+shipping!!!

is there a reason you dont just buy the suction cups. you could get them at your lfs. there are 2 lfs near me that sell ehiem parts and tubing, call yours and find out. it would be cheaper than buying a new filter (and better than buying a smaller filter).

WOW Bob!!! I love your orchids and your immersed plants. They look so healthy!!! Every time I see threads like this, I get closer and closer to starting one of these immersed set ups myself.

Right on, Dude!!

I may take you up on that filter Bob. I'm looking into upgrading the filtration on my cichlid tank.

What's the first thing you're going to do when you get your first paycheck in?

Meh. Tank is looking ugly. At this point, it's just holding stuff until I can finally get a bin outside. It's UGLY
