I just put plastic pot scrubbers in mine to act as additional biomedia. Some riccia made its way into mine, so now it's a biomedia/riccia grow box. Reduces flow great and doubles the capacity of you filter bio media. Also a place shrimp will hide. lol. I've found shrimp in mine, crawling around eating off the plastic pot scrubbers.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.
