Spec V Filter Replacement Basket
I found this online today and am thinking of making the purchase. A bit expensive but looks like it may do a better job than the stock sponge setup. Plus, I like the surface skimmer that comes with it.
Looks like it has plenty of room to stack your favorite media. I was thinking of filling it from top to bottom with coarse foam, filter fiber, lots of biological media and maybe a little carbon on the bottom.
I've been researching several types of bio media, what do you think is the best for a small sump in the Spec? ceramic rings seem to be one of the better ones that I've read about. Opinions?
But then on the other hand, the large stock sponge that comes with the Spec V seems like it could be a bacteria heaven! Currently I have the bio media it came with in one section and carbon in the other section.
I'd like to hear some opinions on this replacement basket mod.
