oh no! my filter is BUSTED!
Well, last night I was doing a water change and while priming my Eheim 2236 I managed to break the plastic fitting where the handle attaches which caused a little crack right where the seal is. And yep, water started gushing out.
I like the Eheim 2236 and I'm all setup with the quick connectors, etc. so I think I just want a replacement unit for it. But, it won't be here until Friday!
I am hoping to keep the media alive so I took the entire 4-tray stack of the little balls out and dropped into the tank with a powerhead aimed at the top. I am hoping that a bit of current will move through the stack from top to bottom and keep the media alive.
Any comments on this technique? I'm not sure how much flow will actually get through there, but it seems better than nothing! What to do??
