Eheim 2217 Canister Accessories question

Hi, going to get an eheim 2217 canniter (first cannister ever), new in box from Big Al. Do I need to purchase accessories, if so which ones, cause i will get a discount if purchased with the aquarium? Thanks

A box of the pads would be good if you get a discount. These can wear out and when water starts finding ways around them they are next to useless. All filters are like this, this is not an Eheim flaw or anything. The white final filter pads are the only filter media I ever replace, and I have Eheim and Rena canisters.

These are the pads for the 2217:

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
