canister replacement for the Rena Filstar XP2 external canister filter
consists of the outer canister, inner filter baskets and rubber feet. To
avoid breaking the canister brackets when attaching and closing the top
of the filter to the canister always start with an empty canister and
let the aquarium fill the canister. Make sure when replacing the basket
assembly that the basket is lined up and nested to each other correctly.
Also make sure the basket assembly is seated properly in the bottom of
the canister. Failure to do so will result in broken clip(s) or broken
bracket(s)on the canister itself.
Quick Fix for broken bracket
(zip) ties can be attached end to end to make a longer tie that will go
over the the top of the filter and under the canister at the feet. The
zip tie can then be tightened and along with the other clamps will
usually hold the motor down on the filter canister until you can
purchase a new canister.
