    Hey guys, I am planning on making a Cerges Reactor. I bought one off ebay for 25 bucks. I just received it today. It looks too small! I could be wrong. This is for a 65 gallon 120p. It will be used with an eheim 2217


    Please let me know if this is the right size... Here are the dimensions.


    The inside diameter is only 3 inches!!!


    How am i supposed to attach the INNER pipe that goes in the middle?? It looks about 1.5 inch diameter...


    Will this work!?

    Most water filter housings are the same interior dimensions to work with standard size filters.


    Just stick a PVC pipe in the middle. It should fit snug. I forget the size, 1"?

    Hmmmm. Really?! They look larger than mine. So the inside tube should be 1 inch diameter??


    Can anyone else confirm this before I start hooking it up??

    It's a little small. I haven't seen anyone use one that small on that size tank. Unfortunately, you won't find out if it's too small until you use it.
