Used filter


I'm looking for a used canister filter to buy or trade. Specifically, I am looking for an eheim 2211 or a fluval 105 or that size (gph output). If anyone has one that they are willing to trade or sell, please let me know.

Thanks.

Just wanted to mention that the price difference between a new 2211 and a 2213 is about $10. In other words, the new price difference is so negligible that you may have an easier time finding a used 2213. There's just more of em!

Depends on which vendor you choose, but I found a roughly $20 dollar difference between a new 2211 and a new 2213. I love my eheim 2211 on the shrimp tank and it has more than enough gph where I need to severely reduce the rate anyways.

Stuff it with a sponge or polyfill (how ever that's spelled)

I've got an Ecco 2232 available. It's missing filter media but has inflow/outflow pipes and I've got Eheim tubing available to cut to length too. Make me an offer!

How old is it? What did you use it on? (saltwater, freshwater, brackish, etc.) and are there any obvious issues?
