I know that you use bio-balls, rings,etc. an filter floss, but what else would I need?

Also what are green pot scrubbies are?


not all are green u can buy 6 for a dollar at most dollar stores.

another cheap and good media is quilt batting they sell it in rolls at walmart, make sure you get one that has not anti bacteria or such they say on the package if they do.

I just got my 303B yesterday and test it. Works perfect. I was going to replace my
C360 and send it back to save $70 but decided to put the 303B on the shelf as a spare now. If I knew about these filters before I bought the Marineland, I would have gotten it first.

Do you think you could pop out the impeller on the c360 and compare it to the 303b? If they are the same then sun sun pimps will have a source on replacement parts

Well, I'm right in the middle of cycling my tank. What my plan was when I am going to do my filter maintenance, pull the C360 apart and compare all parts with the Sunsun. Will the power heads fit each other? Baskets fit? Stuff like that. I can do the impellers and takes some pics and post them. Got to wait 4 weeks though. Make sure you guys remind me!

#15 and here is your reminder lol. But I had to get this filter after seeing my friend buy the C360. Then this one is $160 less, and is built the same and I mean the same except the sunsun primer works out of box lol.

I was wondering how the UV filter differs from the non UV. They look the same is it possible to install a UV lamp. Would be a great idea if it could work.
