Aqueon filter media alternatives
I have an Aqueon 55/75 HOB filter that is working well, however I no longer want to use carbon because I am dosing weekly with Flourish and don't want all of my nutrients being pulled out. I can't afford a new filter right now so a new AquaClear is out of the question.
I'm wondering if anyone has had success with using alternative filter media and floss in the aqueon filter, or any ideas anyone has? Maybe what you used or how you had it setup? To get by for the time being I opened up the floss and dumped out as much carbon as I could from my cartridge, but I'd rather not continue to pay for these expensive cartridges to just dump out the carbon.
Thanks for any input.
