we're only one state away and Hanny only cost us twenty bucks. i say "only", but EE's are the most expensive freshwater fish they were selling, haha. make sure you have a strong block on your filter, just in case he gets his "ears" stuck in the suction. we used a 1"x1"x1" section of aquarium sponge stuck up in the intake tube, and it slowed the filter from a heavy rush to a slow but steady trickle. if yours is one that's powered by an airline pump, get a gang valve for the tubing, and adjust the flow till it's just dribbling out.
