Preferably deadstock/unused, or excellent. No worries about inserts, they're long gone anyway. I'd run it as a biological filter only anyway.

Jb, what area are you located in? It would help any member that may have what you're looking for.

Thanks Venom! Can't believe how tragic losing an oscar was. I wound up giving away my whole setup to a friend and just running a 42g with livebearers LOL. I recently helped a friend cycle his first tank, so a fresh start is on my mind lately. Still makes me sad when I think about it though.

I'm in Minneapolis, but I would pay for any shipping.

Oh also, I do have one NOS in the box. My goal is run two.

If you run these and you have an extra, I would trade the NOS mechanical inserts for a unit without them. The inserts are impossible to find, unless you drop the cash on the WDF3000's on ebay just to get the inserts lol.

Took a look, it looks like each plastic fitting could be DIY'd with current Whisper EX carbon "sock" and a stainless band clamp.

You're welcome jb I wish I could help you.

But you may try Craigslist for your area or kijiji. Unfortunately even as much traffic as we get here it's sometimes hard to find members that have exactly what you are looking for.

Good luck though.

Yeah, I'll probably have to patiently lay in wait again for another one. Eventually -- someday -- I want to experiment with a couple of them using the trickle sponge function only, with full chambers of ceramic and ATI sponges on the intakes (In conjunction w/separate mechanical). No rush. It's just on the front burner atm because I finally scored that NOS one not too long ago :D

It's a pretty obscure old filter that is rather flawed in its attempt to handle all aspects of filtration. The flow rates on them are simply too low for decent mechanical, because of the trickle. I had one almost 20 years ago that really wasn't great for more than a 20g if used as an "all-in-one" HOB. It's only true strength was the trickle but it was brilliant...it's the only plug-n-play HOB I've ever had that fostered heavy groves of green hair algae.
