Cool, thanks for the help. I'll have to look around and hopefully pick one up relatively cheap, because I'm not giving up my background!

Another opinion is ( I did this when I didn't have my spray bar on) is to attach it to the side of the tank with the suction cups. That way you don't have to worry about tearing the background. Its kinda unsightly but it works.

Actually, after looking searching around on google, it seems that a spray bar might not be practical. Several articles I read claims the Ecco canister filter cant handle a spray bar because it puts added pressure on the motor that could burn it up. I sent Eheim a note a will post there response here for future reference material.

And yes, I did just quote myself :)
