Wanted: Replacement Cap for Undergravel Filter Uptake Tube

Post  Katnapper on Mon Jan 27, 2014 4:36 pm

Does anyone, by chance, happen to have an extra undergravel filter uptake tube cap (white, 1 inch, Perfecto) laying around that they don't need? I've called around and the local shops don't have any. I can buy one online; but even as they are only about 60 cents, the shipping is $6.99 most places. I can pay a couple of bucks for one, and pick up at the next meeting if anyone has one.

My power filter (cone thingy) died, and now I have an uptake tube sticking up, open at the top. I'd like to take the tube out and cap the hole so no rocks, fish, or snails get down there.

Or if no one has any extra, maybe you can keep an eye out for me when you come across used aquariums or parts. It's nothing urgent... a cut-out portion of a clear sandwich baggie held on by a rubber band is making due for now. But it's not the most aesthetic thing in my aquarium, lol.

Hmmm.... might check that. Or I might just bite the bullet and order one online if after some time I don't find anything.
