For All The Fluval C Series Users

I have 3 Fluval C3 and 1 C4 and after the original pads that covered the drip compartment were unusable , I tried many different things for a replacement and none really worked . Then I tried Fluval polishing pads and they work great . I just rinse them weekly when I clean the tanks and they last a good while . And they really polish the water even though they are not in the main stream . If you look at the way the C series works , the water that goes over the drip compartment is bypassing the main filtering compartments , so this makes up for that by fine filtering the water that passes through the drip compartment . I just pull them apart long ways into about 1/8 th inch pieces and cut a slot in the middle so they fit in the tray on top of the drip chamber . Here are a couple of pics to try and help explain.....sorry they are

My wife says if I get one more aquarium she is going to leave me . I sure am going to miss her fried chicken .
