air filter = polishing pad?
Hi all, I recently got a fluval 205 for my 29 gal, and I stuffed it with polyester filter floss. I couldnt find a bag of the stuff so I got a pillow that was hypoallergenic and didnt have and anti-fungal or anti smell or anything like that characteristics. My water seems to be cloudy though. I have read that this may be a bacteria bloom while my filter builds up the good bacteria. My question is regarding using a furnace air filter as a polishing pad. I had to go replace the filter for my furnace today, so I got one of those cheap white filter 3 packs (like 2 bucks) but it turns out my super had one waiting for me, so I have this extra filter media that I would like to cut to shape into my fluval...any suggestions/past experience?
