Hello all,

I'm about to pickup a 2nd hand 2213 without an intake pipe and would like some advise on the filter and mods I can do to it.

1. I heard the Eheim pipes are 12.5mm in diameter, is this true? I was going to replace both the intake and outlet pipe with Boston Tubing anyways seeing as it's clear, but I think the nearest size is 13mm? Would it be better to stretch a smaller size instead?

2. It's going on my new 108L rimless, currently filtered with an Aquaclear50 HOB filter. I'm not a huge fan of filtration but I heard these pieces of German Engineering are so great I just have to try it. Will the 400lph be enough for a dozen or so female bettas?

3. What helpful modifications can I do to this filter? Apart from making the tubing clear, what are some mods you've found handy? Not looking at buying the expansion set or anything BTW.

Thanks!

-Sam
