I'm looking for a pre-filter for my Eheim Classic 2217 that will fit over the intake.
Is this it?Just got mine at Petsmart: I think it's made by Fluval and cost around 3 bucks.
Is this what you're talking about?I'm not sure which will fit, I thought they were all the same size.
I use the prefilter from a Danner 700 on my Eheim 2028 and it fits perfectly. I put one on my Ecco 2236, and while it fits, it is clearly too big. Looks a little weird, but works great.
Those sponge filters are closed on one side, correct?I would suggest you look at these http://www.bigalsonline.com/BigAlsUS/ctl3684/cp18430/si1379857/cl0/aquariumsystemsmaxijetprefiltersponge.While they are made for the Maxi-Jet powerheads they should pretty much work on any filter intake. I used then on a Penguin 170.
Thanks, I'll get one of those and one of the other ones just to compare flow. I would like as little interference with the water flow going into the intake as possible. The coarser the sponge the better.dantra,
The one you linked is the one I have.
This is the one that I use. You can cut it in half and have two.
I'm using this one on as pre-filter for a Rena XP2 canister. I needed it to keep the shrimp out of the filter. This sponge is fairly coarse as well, no clogging issues.
Since I can't find the Hagen Fluval Edge Pre-Filter Sponge I think I'll just go with the one you guys suggested, hbosman and Left C. roud:This is the one that I use. You can cut it in half and have two.
Eheim has a prefilter too: http://www.bigalsonline.com/StoreCa...y=eheim+prefilter&queryType=0&hits=12&offset=
