Oh Baby:)

My new monster Eheim 2260 showed up this afternoon and I'm like a new father :P The slightly sick thing is, they're twins now. Heheh. As far as I know the 2260 is the biggest canister Eheim makes (and who doesn't love ze Germans?) and is rated for up to a 400 gallon tank. I've got two of them on my 125G planted ARLC tank and have to admit I'm slightly ecstatic

This is me with my new bouncing baby Eheim:




This is my new child next to a five gallon bucket (for perspective/scale). In the cabinet to the right you can see his twin brother :P :



Oh, I simply can't wait

Hardcore. I can't get over how huge they are. I think one of your babies is thinking about eating the bucket.

I think that thing is bigger than my tank. Good luck with the twins.

Congrats!

Wow, I think my 10 gallon tank would fit in that thing with room to spare!

Do the specs say how much water is in the filter at any one time?
