I'm thinking of adding the eheim surface extractor to my 2126 filter. I was told to do this with the 2126 I would need to add a T-adapter. Has anyone done this and if so what size T do I need? And could someone explain how do I connect the T with the intake and surface skimmer?

You do need to "T" it in.

The surface extractor was designed to be used with filters less powerful than the 2126. The pull on the filter is too strong for the surface extractor, there is a weighted part inside of the unit that will rattle like no tomorrow if the unit is not "T"ed inline.

The "T" you need is a reducing "T". The surface extractor is roughly 1/2" and the 2126 roughly 5/8".
