Polyfill aka Filter Floss

I had a huge bag of this laying around from when i ship Snakes. Figured id add some of it to my Powerfilter that hangs off back.

One question, this polyfill i can use it 100% rather buying the overpriced cartridges correct. Cleaned same way in siphoned tank water, and if too dirty, cut it and replace with new pieces.

I have 20g tall running the Marineland penguin bio wheel 200 filter

Water is clear just i have a crap ton of bubbles all over the tank from when doing pwc and the air stone bubbles meeting with the filter water outflow.

As long as the material has not been treated (e.g. like a fire retardant) it's fine to use. I also use the wallymart polyester fiber here and there - a far better price than fiber floss sold in pet stores.
