    Price range is close although $40 seems a bit much for a used AC110. $60 is a good price for a used 2215 as long as the impeller and motor are in good shape. You probably want to plan on new hoses and clamps though?

    You can't compare a canister filter with any HOB when it comes to biofiltration. A canister is always going to win that battle.

    If that 2215 comes with taps and is in good working condition even $80 doesn't seem unreasonable. If it's without taps I wouldn't go beyond 60. No opinion on the AC because I don't know them

    this is what the ad says

    "Comes with bubbler bar hoses and shut-off valves"

    http://rochester.craigslist.org/for/3735575273.html

    I have never used one so I really don't know what to look for

    The piece of hose on the intake, the lower hose, shows half of a shut off valve. If the seller has the other half and the bit for the exit hose on the top then it's complete.

    Judging from the pictures it's in decent shape and not too old. I've seen far worse on offer.

    If you do go for a pickup look at the intake on the bottom, the part where it is fused to the canister itself that can show cracks if the previous owner has not been careful. Also lift the top, remove the impellor cover and see if the shaft is still good (download the eheim manual if you're unsure). Those are pretty much the only places where non-obvious defects can be found.

    Awesome, thanks for the advice. I may go look at it this weekend. Just wish i could get the fish I wanted, the auction ends this weekend and I won't be able to be near a computer :(

    I'll dl the user manual and check it out.

    And I really don't wanna pay a ton for them. Gonna check out a few more LFS to keep my options open.

    You got a plan, you got some options now. I'm sure you'll come up with the right solution.

    Question for you, I am planning on the aquaclear 110 (from friend) and either the 2215 or 2217 (most likely the 2215). What media arrangement would you recommend?

    I can get the 2215 new for $110 vs the guy wanting $80 for it used. And with it new I get new media (pads) etc

    Can I take the biomax out of my current HOB filters to seed the new filter. I'd prob do one filter at a time for about 1 month to get it all swapped over

    You sure can - that's the best way to jumpstart a new filter.

    I would get an AC 110 and use the largest of the other two filters you already have.
