whats in your canister filter?
lets talk whats in your canister filter and why?
I was all about to order some lava rock for the bio media but it was suggested the ceramic rigs have more surface area, is that true? I guess so but just want to confirm. so what is the "best" bio media.
looks like you can
also wondering about dry reef rock. I know the stuff is very porous and works great in my reefs but guessing it will mess up the PH or break down with the Co2?? just an idea...
also not sure I fully understand layering the canister filter. seams like alot of ppl use polyfill as the 1st layer but that seams like it would get clogged and rot faster =needed to be cleaned faster than the rest. but its on the bottom making it a PITA .
this it what I was thinking:
1st layer the water touches mechanical with pot scrubbers.
2nd and 3rd bio media Lava rock or ceramic rings
4th layer polyfill to polish the water.
