My New R2 Unit

Had to post this pic. My 125G Mbuna tank has been running on two XP3s for two years now and they are no longer cutting it. Between plants and Africans they've started to lag. I decided to get a new Eheim but I couldn't find the canister I was looking for so I decided to get the biggest monster canister that Eheim makes, the 2260. It's roughly the size of a five-gallon bucket with a massive mag-drive pump bolted onto the top of it. It just barely fits under my tank. I cannot begin to describe how powerful this dang thing is. It's capable of filtering up to a 400G tank. Oh baby

Now that required a pickup truck to bring home, I'm sure!

That's a nice-looking filter!
