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

This is all that I have so far. I'll ask him for more. Anything specific I should ask for a picture of?

sdbrewer 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?

sdbrewer 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?

thebuddha if you dont want it, see if they will ship it to me!

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.

cichnatic 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!
