worst week ever.

omg. worst freaking week ever.

first, one of the tubes on my rena popped off while i was out and dumped 15 gallons of water on the floor. I fixed the tubing and got hose clamps.

then i came home today, and like, 20 of my rcs died for some reason.

and to top it all off, the rena is now leaking onto the JUST dry carpet.

The entire ecco series all use 12mm tubing, so the 2215 would work just fine with your lily pipes. Are you planning on putting anything inline, like a heater or diffuser?

___My 120 Gallon___ EHEIM PIMP #407, 2x 2229, 2x 1250 Hobby Pumps, 1x Ecco 2236, and 1x Eheim Sludge Extractor

I just bought a 2213. i know its a little weaker than the 2215, and the flow will be less, but i have an iwagumi set up so the plants are low and this should be adequate flow.

pretty excited.

I asked my bro, and it turns out the rena is over 10 years old.

My rena started leaking a few days ago too. Switching over to fluval. My 205 has lasted over a year now and I've only had the rena for a few months.

maybe its the heat in here, maybe its the pressure
you ought to head for the exits, the sooner the better
