Loading an Eheim 2017
After reading the “Bio Media” thread and researching for a few hours I started to wonder if I have my Eheim 2017s loaded correctly. As you know the inflow is from the bottom and goes up through (1) ceramic rings, (2) a course sponge, (3) bio media, and finally (4) through mechanical filter media which are filter pads.
Questions and opinions....can I change the bio media to pot scrubbers? Shouldn’t the bio media be in the #4 position? Would it be helpful to have the mechanical media in 3 stages of foams from course to fine? All opinions are welcomed and I thank you for them in advance.
