Inexpensive powered UV filter.
I'm re-setting up my 20L and originally wanted to run my Odyssea UV off of my 2211 Eheim. The output hose on the Eheim was too small. I tried adapters, but it leaked like a sieve. So I bought one of those cheap powerheads from Petco, and with a bit of jury-rigging got it hooked up, plumbed, and watertight. I was able to attach a plastic soda bottle with the bottom cut out by putting a short piece of 1/2" tubing and pushing the bottleneck up as far as it would go, and stuffed it with some polyester fill. I'm waiting till tomorrow to be certain that I have no leaks, then I'll turn it on. I'm going to put a second one in my 75G just for circulation and water polishing, it could use both. I'll have to take and post a couple of pictures of it.
