Eheim surface extractor

Just set one of these up in my FW tank and must say that it's pretty useless.

Anyone else had the misfortune of buying one of these?

I use the Fluval with my skimmer (saltwater). It works great!

Yeah after tinkering around with the Eheim one all day I ended up ordering the Fluval one. Apparently they fit the 12/16 hose of the 2215 and are meant to work a lot better.
