Don't have a pic handy, but I did this with my 2217 with one of the dual-sponge filters. Took a bit of creative engineering, but it works flawlessly. Also keeps the snails out of my precious...

Thanks! I don't mind the stained water if that happens; I have a dirted guppy bowl that turned out that way on its own, and I love the look. And that was exactly the thought I had too...the wood adds...
