|sbarbee54||Quick connects spray bar, head of the unit, instake basket intake tube. Lines are cheap to buy at lowes or HD so the tubing missing or busted is cool|

A bit more info on the canister:
"It's missing the intake tube. No media and may need a small section of 1/2 inch tubing replaced because it may leak from the tubing. I did a cheap fix on it and it was fine but I would still probably replace it. The canister itself doesn't leak. Has a new o-ring and impeller shaft and runs well."
Does dropping the $25 for it still seem like a good idea?

Would it be an improvement over the AC50? I'd plan on adding an inline heater and diffuser or reactor. Would those be too much of a detriment to the flow?
And any suggestions on what specific media you would get for it?

|nikonD70s||as long as its perfectly working then thats a great price. you can get you own media for cheap..unless u want to go with the more pricey eheim media's. def buy it if theres nothing wrong with it.|

I would purchase it if it was me. You can always purchase bio media from online sellers (Amazon, Kens, BigAls) for cheap.
You can make a diy spray bar out from pvc pipes, look in the DIY section. If you want the green output from Eheim, you can purchase them online also.

Used Eheim 2215
I found a used Eheim 2215 selling for $25 in working condition. Only catch is it doesn't include media or an outflow. Is it worth purchasing for the price, and how much can I expect to spend replacing those missing pieces? This would be going on a 20 gallon long that's currently running an AC50. Thanks!
