Has anyone successfully mounted the Filter-Max III on the stock green Eheim 2217 intake? I've tried all different combinations of the included adapters, but nothing seems to firmly attach the filter unit to the intake tube. I've resorted to just sticking the sponge on the Eheim strainer, but I really need to get the offset plumbing on there to keep it from smashing up against the glass. Any ideas?

I believe you need the adapter show at the top of the elbow, on the bottom right picture.
If the Filter-Max III didn't come with one, I don't know where you'd get one any more. Lifeguard used to sell them as reverse flow adapters.
