You should definitely ditch the cartridges for the filter and just use a sponge in the slot there as your main filter media, in my opinion.
I see your point, after the bio-wheel is seeded should I refrain from any type of "pre-filter" and just let the water run directly to the bio-wheel?
Or keep my sponge in place as a pre filter?
That's good news on my ability to seed the wheel with seasoned media, it should work well. Posted via Mobile Device
