Hail the new president with such an orderly spare parts division.

I have the following.

Eheim surface extractor
2 x 2026 pro 2
1 x 2224
1 x 1250 centrifugal pump
2 X Eheim ball powerheads
and numerous spare parts and tubing accessories.

Think I qualify!

Paul

I nominate myself to be in charge of admitting/denying new members on the basis that Mike just hands out the title to anyone who owns an Eheim! It defaces the value of being an Eheim pimp, for 'tis no easy task. It is not easy to convince the great unwashed masses that the Eheim's are worth all that money. One must be of a certain mind to become a true Eheim pimp.

And yes, Wellbiz, you had better start running for the door! And as for Raul, I feel that he may be a lost cause. We have tried many times, yet he remains steadfast in his belief that there is something better than an Eheim out there. Sometimes it makes me wonder about his sanity.......

heh.. if thats $200 Canadian I'd call you "Joe consumer" because you would be spending as much on a filter as every other Tom Dick and Harry....

Now if you forked out $1200 on Filters.. I'd call you....well.. me!

Some one who cares about the quality of filtration on their tank and does not want a filter that sounds like a diesel Volkswagon. :shock:

Well, if it's a canister that means it's probably an Eheim so I'd call that person a smart consumer.

Pimpers of the world unite, it is now the season of our miscontent, we must take the cause to new heights. I simply say this.

We will fight them on the beaches, we will fight them in the air, hey hang on thats the wrong speech!

Maybe it was "I have a dream". Na!

Anyway Eheim rules, I hearby nominate myself to be the secretary of the Eheim Pimp Club, and will return later with the proposed new rules for membership of this great and knowledgable association.

All Hail Eheim!!

Paul

Secretary of All Things Eheim,

I suggest rules of recruitment and engagement be brought up for consultation with the Director and Principal of Recruitment Standards and Practices, Mr. G Willms for his perusal and approvement! Mr. Willms will also stand as Sargent at Arms and Dispensor of Punisment, if he is so willing!

Langes Leben zu allen Eheimers!

Mike
