Big Al's carries the 7273050 lattices for 2213 Classic Filters. You need two of them.

Hey just wondering, what happens if your baby brother "accidentally" knocks down a (running) Eheim 2213?

Yay I'm #341

One more quick question, how do the quick disconnect valves work? I thought there's something that you slide in to prevent the water from coming out...

EDIT: Are we supposed to turn/rotate the circled things?

Cause mine aren't turning

EDIT 2: Nvm, they just needed some force to turn at first

EDIT 3: A better question is, on the 2213, how do you remove the top of the media basket to reach/clean the filter media?

EDIT 4: LOL I just figured out how to

IMO you should modify the 2213. The lattice for the 2213's are now available at Big Als. http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/eq...-increase.html

Sorry for so many questions....

Can I just cut off some of the hard intake tubing with a saw? Because it's too long for my tank.

And could I replace the spraybar with something like this: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...0&pcatid=14680

The 494 tubing that comes with your 2213 has a 1/2" (12mm) inside diameter. The smallest U-tube that you linked is made for 5/8" - 3/4" (16mm to 19mm) inside diameter tubing.
