Look back, you guys are #44 and #45.

Looks like you got confused because HungrySpleen quoted #42.

Got mine yesterday and putting it together.

It came with:

bottom tray: 3/4 in. of white filter floss and 18 black bioballs

middle tray: 1/2 in. of white filter floss and some ceramic media

top tray: 3/4 in. each of white floss then 3/4 in. of blue scrubby stuff and a bag of carbon.

Other than putting my Purigen in the top tray do I need to modify this any....or add to?

And one more question...can I be number 46?

if you can add more biomax or something like it it won't hurt at all and should add more surface area for the beneficial bacteria, thats what i did. The more the better IMO ^^

I order two of them and neither one came with a single thin except the thin filter floss. One is the 302 model and the other is the 304b than comes with the uv sterilizer. I wonder is it just the seller or if I just received an older box. I don't see why you can't be #46

ON the left is the 304B and the right is the 302. You can clearly see the difference in size. Even the hoses are thicker. Right I'm looking for a way to connect the two different sizes by using some sort of joint or adapter because my 20 gallon don't have enough room for two different spray bars and intakes.


You can see the spiraling design to slow down water to allow more contact to the uv light. I read somewhere that the plastic may not be UV protected so how long would it take to degrade to the point where it is unusable?

Probably a few years of running it 24/7. Does it have it's own power cord/switch or is it always on in the 304b?

it has a off/on switch and runs off the same power as the motor.

Default How many should I use?

I will be ordering the appropriate model(s) for my 60 gallon as soon as I figure out what to get. what would I need for this tank? I also would like to hook it up to a couple of loc line returns. is one filter enough flow for 2 nozzels? any suggestions or ideas so I can get this thing ordered would be helpful.

I finally put the Perfect HW302 I got last month into service. So that makes me a pimp with a stable?.. both SunSun and Eheim. Was looking to save a few bucks and decide to try the low-cost champ. So Pimp #47.

Only got the basic filter media: three 1 inch floss pads. Using lava rock in the first two baskets and one pad. Going to add more loose floss in the last basket when I get another bag from the store.
