    Hello,
    A few questions regarding the 2224 filter, I want to replace the tubing supplied for the clear stuff from aqua essentials and add a external heater and lilys. Does anyone know what dimension the tubing is and if it's possible to use the hydor external with it?
    also which set of lilys would I need to buy the 13mm or the 17 mm?
    thank you in advance,
    Gareth.

    Morning Gareth.

    According to aquatics online the inlet/outlet is 12mm so you'd need 12/16mm tubing. I guess this would mean you'd need the 13mm glassware, but not sure on that one.

    You'll need 12/16mm filter hose. The ADA stuff is clear, but not cheap.

    The Hydor ETH 200 external heater fits that hose size.

    And 12 or 13mm lily pipes.

    Thanks kids, George Aquaessentials is selling 3meters of clear tube for £4 so thats not too bad.
    The more I use aqua-essentials the more expencive I find them, Really off putting when your a student, shame since they're so good

    Also, did anyone notice the hydor airppump in this months pfk? Could it be used as a ready made co2 venturi? £5 says it could. ;)
