It's an Eheim Surface Suction Extractor. I'm running it with a small
Eheim power head which is not the way they're meant to run but works
fine. They are meant to go on the intake to one of Eheim's cannister
filters but they will fit happily onto the intake of Fluval, Sacem, and I
suspect most European brands of cannister filter. Your would have to play
around a bit to get one connected to a US cannister (the thing is
designed to fit metric sized hoses - your American filters that I have
seen tend to use half-inch hosing which is too wide).
The details of how I do it are in the Archives and I won't repeat them
here to bore people again. If you can't access them or need more info,
contact me privately and I'll answer your questions.
