Hello,

Ive got a 75 gallon tank with 2 2215 filters set up with a spray bar and intake on either side of the tank. I am kind of getting tired of looking at all the stuff sticking out and wondered if anyone had plumbed multiple filters in paralell or in series. Also has anyone used 2+ filters with lily pipes? Pics would be great.

BTW the eheims use 12/166mm ID/OD tubing

Well if you hook them up in series are are only going to get the flow rate equal to one of the filters. The only advantage to this would be an increase in media so you wouldn't have to clean them as often. Even that is subject to limitations.

With two filters running on there own you are already in paralell.
