Spray bar

I have a aqua one tank which was given to me with an eheim 2213 canister filter, i am having trouble getting a spray bar to fit with the return spout, and keep the lid on. So do I really need a spray bar, it seems ok without it, I am very new to aquariums and have gold fish, thanks

It's really not needed. Just point the return spout up a bit to get some movement on the top of the water and you will be fine..

Hey Mike,

I recently acquired an Eheim 2213 filter from a sweet deal and it's working wonders for my tank. I'll upload a few shots so you can see how the previous owner had this modified to work with the tank. I hope this helps. Also, I found a lot of replacement parts available thru Amazon. I recently picked up new suction cups.
