filter media/ filter foam sites??


Any good sites to buy filter foam that i can cut as needed and make my own sponge filters with? Cheaper is better but functionality is key as well. Stuff i can use for canisters, filters and sponge filters..

Matala brand is the best IMO but there's lots of generic filter media you can find on auction websites, try looking for pond filter pads its usually cheaper

I bought some custom foam inserts for my wet/dry from Angels Plus and I recommend them:

I used Pen Air, aquaticeco, and got a roll of 20ppi reticulated foam, a roll of 40ppi reticulated foam, and a roll of syn glass. All billed as fish friendly.

Swisstropicals.com sells Poret foam filter material in large sheets or precut. I use it in all my filters.
