Default Need snails

Sorry forgot some things. I will also take rams horn snails of any color. I am also looking for a canister filter. Don't care what kind as long as it's not a fluval and it will work on a 29 gallon tank . It will be for mechanical filtration only. I will trade a swagelok SS-OVM2 - BKB needle valve. I bought it used but I only used it for a day. Nothing wrong with it I just went with a different set up. Its positioning was wrong after I got it all together but worked like a charm. I am not desperate yet but I am getting close. My fluval is on its last leg.

I just got an Eheim Ecco 2232 on clearance for $50 at Pet Smart yesterday. If you have one near you you may get lucky and find one.

Fluval filters are pretty tough to kill. What is wrong with it? It may be a simple fix. Now Eheim, I have burned up 3 Ecco (2234,2236) heads. When the impeller stop spinning, it stops cooling the pump head at which the magnetic coils overheat and melt inside plastic of the impeller housing.

Hope that doesn't happen to me. But then I'm opposite, I've had two Fluval filters die on me within 6 months, so I decided to see how Eheim does for me.

Oh I love my 2213 and 2280 filters. I think the ecco series have a engineering flaw. I have a early 2236 and have not had any problems with. It's when they redesign them to increase energy efficiency, I think they may have reduced impeller housing inside diameter or modified the power coils. I've noticed retailers are selling off the ecco stock. Makes me wonder if they see a trend.
