Now that I have it home, I'm not 100% sure if I like it. I'm debating if I should return it? I was originally thinking I would do spiderwood in the...

    HI everyone, wondering if anyone knows what size suction cups I should get to replace the ones that secure the spray bar for the EheI'm 2224 canister filter?
