Filter Cartridges or Filter Media
I was wondering what peoples opinions where on different filter media and switching from a cartridge to bagged media. I currently have an AquaTech 5-15 power filter. It uses cartridges that I need to switch out every 2 to 3 weeks. This is no issue. I have been told though that putting my own media in there will not only increase the surface area for beneficial bacteria to grow but it also will be cheaper in the long term. If this is so any tips on how to do this. I see you can purchase carbon and bio balls. what would i put this in and what else would be necessary.
Thank you for all your input,
