Nice find Paulo.

I have an old fluval 3 (bought in 1989 way before the fluval + range came out) and the foam from it fits over my tetratec ex1200 inlet perfectly.
It is amazing to think that I now have the same level of fltration on just my inlet that I used to have in the whole tank :wideyed:

You can get old fluval 2,3,4 foam here ( http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0424490311 ) and they are really cheap as well. Cheaper than I could find any other cylindrical foam with the centre cut out. I think Paulos find is a more elegant solution, but these are a smidge cheaper and you get a bit of biological filtration chucke din as well.
